Solid waste public hearing scheduled Monday, July 31
A public hearing to take comments on the Marshall County Comprehensive Solid Waste Plan is set for Monday, July 31, at 6 p.m. at the courthouse. The solid waste committee will conduct the hearing.
Included in the solid waste management system program executive summary is a forward-looking proposal for how the county will address the disposal of various types of solid waste - including a prospective site for a rubbish pit and/or household waste landfill.
Members of the solid waste committee say they expect to hear some opposition to the proposed landfill off Landfill Road at the West Holly Springs Exit.
A 100-mile radius service area from the proposed facility is specified as well as other types of waste handling on the 68.7-acre site located adjacent to a 2.5 acre dump and transfer station owned and operated by the county. The plan includes a proposal to construct and operate a solid waste transfer station, a recycling collection center, an upgrade to the collection site for waste tires and a Class I rubbish site and a municipal solid waste landfill.
Last week’s front page story and headline in The South Reporter on the solid waste public hearing left out the date. The newspaper apologizes for the omission and any confusion it may have caused.
