Zoning board denies expansion request

HENRICO, VA (WWBT) - A local landfill's bid to get bigger is dealt a setback.

On Thursday, the Henrico County board of zoning appeals denied a request by the East End Landfill to expand into a wooded area along Darbytown Road.

The landfill's owner is still awaiting word on a second request, which would allow it to take in more construction waste, without actually growing larger in size.
