The two top solid waste officials in Leon County, Fla. have been forced to resign in the wake of revelations that asbestos was not properly handled at the county's landfill on two separate occasions. The director of solid waste and solid waste superintendent submitted their resignations after internal investigations found that the solid waste department did not report to the county about a state investigation that uncovered mishandled asbestos at the landfill. The county is now looking to conduct an outside performance audit of Leon's landfill and transfer station.
