Landfill possibly coming to Ellabell

ELLABELL, GA (WTOC) - Hundreds of people who showed up Monday night in Ellabell because a company wants to put a municipal waste disposal facility off Olive Branch Drive in Ellabell.

The move would mean six to seven dump trucks an hour would move through the usually quiet country road, along with the obvious environmental concerns, and residents were not happy.

Bryan County still has to rezone the area to make way for the landfill, so WTOC will let you know what they decide.
