Waste Management Inc., the company that proposes to develop a landfill at Cornersville to replace Cedar Ridge Landfill just west of Lewisburg, has donated money to various groups in Marshall County and is offering more as it's negotiating a contract with county commissioners if the legislative body permits a replacement landfill.

New and continuing donations appear to total nearly $40,000, according to figures provided by the company.

"Our goal is to be a trusted and valued community partner, and we focus our efforts on programs that make our community cleaner, safer and stronger," Waste Management spokeswoman Terri Douglas said recently to announce the company's renewed commitment and recap what has been provided during recent years.
