Residents still down in the dumps about a proposed landfill

RICHMOND HILL, GA (WTOC) - People against a proposed landfill made sure their voices were heard during a Bryan County commission meeting Tuesday night.

Atlantic Waste Incorporated wants to put the landfill in the Black Creek community off Olive Branch Road, near Interstate 16 and close to a few residential neighborhoods.

Other than the extra noise and traffic, neighbors said the landfill could also hurt their water sources and beyond.

"They have to be concerned about the fact that all that pollutants are going to be going into the Ogeechee River and all the way down to the ocean and it's going to cause havoc for all of Bryan County," said Laurie Langston.

The county still hasn't received permits from Atlantic Waste about the issue, so they can't vote on anything just yet.

WTOC will let you know when they do.
