My vote on the Chatham County landfill

t our meeting on January 18, we voted to halt our efforts to identify a potential landfill in the county. I understand that we have a responsibility to deal with our trash but am not convinced that a landfill is the best long-term solution. Over the past 18 months the solid waste advisory committee has been studying various alternatives for us to dispose of our trash. We currently ship our trash to a regional landfill in Sampson County; an 81 mile drive. We all agree that this isn’t the best long-term solution.
