Madison Township community opposes idea of ​​another landfill coming to Valley

Madison, Ohio TWP. (WKBN) – On Thursday night, West Point residents heard from the Ohio EPA about a West Point renewable landfill proposal that could come to the area. Not a single person at the meeting was in favor of reclamation. Many are concerned about other landfill problems recurring in the area.

“I don’t trust Ohio’s EPA,” said Roger Pound, who lives across from the now-defunct East Liverpool landfill.

Pound says the dump contaminated well water and had to pay $1,500 to install water pipes on the property.

“Ten years without using my property. Ten years without sitting outside.

Madison Township is the proposed landfill site. Township trustee Wayne Chamberlain says no one in the community wants the landfill to go there.

“We don’t want that. There are no pluses, all minuses. We had two landfills in our town and we had no problems. Same with this one,” Chamberlain said. rice field.

A landfill was previously proposed in the area, Chamberlain said. Thursday night’s meeting was about air permits, but Chamberlain says the bigger concern is water.

“It’s been weakened by mines. They’re there and they’re flooded with water. So if this water gets in there, it’s going downhill. It’s clear we’re going to reach Little Beaver Creek.” ‘ said Chamberlain.

Lisbon Mayor Pete Wilson also spoke at the conference. His village is about five miles away from the proposed landfill. He is interested in Vogle Holdings environmental records. Vogel Holdings is the parent company of West Point He Renewables.

“There is a lawsuit going on right now about their business in Pennsylvania. This company is having trouble complying with Pennsylvania regulations.Why is Ohio different?” Wilson said.

The Ohio EPA declined a formal interview for this article, but a representative said a possible way to stop the landfill is to change the zoning of the land. The Ohio EPA has announced another meeting, but has not yet announced a date.
