CHESTERFIELD COUNTY, VA (WWBT) - A landfill in Chesterfield will not expand  anytime in the near future.

The Times-Dispatch reports that last night the Board of Supervisors voted to rejected a request by Shoosmith Brothers to expand its landfill.

Shoosmith Brothers wanted to use its rock quarry to store out-of-state trash.

Last month, the county's planning commission also voted against it.
