Maury Co. residents fighting against new landfill

Posted: Updated:
COLUMBIA, TN (WSMV) -

Residents in Maury County are fighting to keep a massive landfill from being built near their homes.

According to The Daily Herald, two Colorado-based firms are trying to build an 845-acre dump somewhere in the county.

The developers said it would create 162 new jobs and give the county nearly $2 million each year in revenue.

Some residents are afraid it will damage the environment and cause property values to drop.

The county will consider the proposal at a meeting in September.
