At least one Jackson County business isn’t too happy with Seymour’s recent decision to increase its fees for private septic haulers that bring wastes to the city’s wastewater plant for treatment.
Ralph Collins, manager of Rumpke of Indiana’s Medora Landfill, told common council members recently that the fee increase from 1 cent a gallon to 3 cents a gallon is too steep for the business to handle at once.
Collins said the firm hauls from 1 million to 2 million gallons of leachate for processing each year at Seymour’s Water Pollution Control Facility. Leachate is water that drains from the landfill and must be treated to remove toxins.
