  • 808 acres of property total at the landfill site; only 25% of site property is used for disposal.
  • Middle Point Park provides a space for both football and baseball youth leagues to practice and play games. There is no charge to the league to use the fields, and routine maintenance costs are covered by Republic.
  • From host fees, Rutherford County realized a benefit of more than $900,000 in 2017.
  • In 1995, Rutherford County and BFI entered into an agreement for Middle Point that allowed the county to send its household waste to the landfill free. Later that year, the City of Murfreesboro entered into an agreement with BFI for its residents to benefit from no-cost trash disposal (216k tons, worth approximately $6.7 million in 2017). There is a cost assessed by the county and city to pick up trash, but there is no cost for disposal at Middle Point Landfill.
  • Since 1991, Middle Point has been a proud supporter of Walter Hill Elementary School.
  • Middle Point donated land to the Walter Hill Volunteer Fire Department to build a new fire station.

Republic Services Landfill Management

Republic Services is dedicated to maintaining a balance between its business operations and protecting the environment and communities we serve. With the Blue PlanetTM sustainability initiative, Republic is defining our approach to environmental responsibility through decreased vehicle emissions, the use of renewable energy and innovative landfill technologies.

Landfills are an essential part of the infrastructure necessary for a community to function, and their role is increasingly vital as our population grows and the number of active, permitted landfills declines.

As an industry leader that, through its subsidiaries, owns and operates over 300 active and closed landfills nationwide, Republic understands that society requires landfills to be more sophisticated than ever before, and we set the standard for quality landfill management.

Republic is committed to operating landfills with environmental practices and policies that are good for our customers, local businesses and residents. Equipped with a team of professional landfill experts, including more than 160 environmental managers, engineers and scientists across the U.S., we work to ensure that the long-term management of the country’s waste materials is regenerative to the planet.

At Republic, we believe that we are guardians of our environment and have a responsibility to regenerate our planet with the materials we are entrusted to handle every day. That is why we leverage the power of science, advanced technologies and innovation to customize site management plans at each landfill we operate.
