Possible expansion of Chesterfield landfill

Posted by Iva Radman – email

CHESTERFIELD COUNTY, VA (WWBT) - A public hearing is planned for Tuesday night in Chesterfield over plans to expand the Shoosmith Brothers Landfill.

It wants to grow its operations into a granite quarry next door.

Without expansion, the landfill's operator says out-of-state waste disposal would stop. The landfill would then have to lay off some of its 130 workers, or raise disposal prices.

The meeting is tonight at s6pm, at the Chesterfield Administration Building.
