The Greensboro News-Record reports today on a proposed dump expansion
High Point residents are worried about expansion of a landfill off Kivett Drive.
The City of High Point held a forum Tuesday night to explain the expansion plans and listen to neighbors’ concerns. City officials told citizens that the current landfill is expected to reach capacity by 2008 and more space is needed to keep it operating. They say that 22 acres need to be annexed and the landfill’s permit updated.
The High Point City Council and the N.C. Division of Waste Management have to approve the plans before the site can be expanded. The proposed expansion of the dump is expected to take about a year to complete.
