MORETOWN — A Vermont landfill that was ordered to close has won a 90-day reprieve.
The Vermont Agency of Natural Resources last month ordered the Moretown landfill to close, citing odor problems and groundwater pollution. The landfill had until Monday to stop accepting trash.
But the Environmental Court has granted the landfill a 90-day extension.
The landfill is currently closed. The owners are appealing the agency’s decision.
Vermont now has only one landfill left used for trash disposal, in the northern Vermont town of Coventry.MORE IN Vermont NewsAs Rutland prepares to welcome Syrian refugees to its community, some are continuing to voice... Full StoryMONTPELIER — Gov. Full Story
