Another New Solid Waste Landfill in Madison County?

For your information and action.
Time sensitive information!

The NCL Landfill is located on a 165-acre tract of land located in Madison County, Mississippi. NCL currently owns the proposed land and would be operating the landfill. The NCL Landfill would be used for the disposal of non-hazardous household, commercial, and industrial solid wastes generated from the Jackson metropolitan area and surrounding communities. The proposed capacity of the NCL Landfill would be 14,200,000 cubic yards.

Interested parties may provide comments, opinion/statement of opposition.

Among other things, this new landfill will result in huge increases of large truck traffic on Madison County Roads including Hwy 463, Coker, Lake Cavalier, North Livingston, Greens Crossing, Rouser Road, Old Agency, etc.

There are 18 active solid waste landfills in the State of Mississippi. No county has more than 1 except Madison County, which has two: Little Dixie off North County Line Road, and the sanitary landfill just south of Canton. If this permit is approved, then Madison County will have 3 solid waste landfills out of only 19 in the entire State of Mississippi!

Please help me spread the word and make sure all are aware of the attached PUBLIC NOTICE!!!
