The potential agreement between Tazewell County Landfill Inc., a subsidiary of Peoria Disposal Co., and the Tazewell County Board would make the landfill operator financially responsible for five years to meet stringent environmental guidelines. The agreement could relieve the county of a solution of where to take the county's garbage, after its only landfill in East Peoria closes next year.
