Brazos County Neighborhoods Meeting to Discuss Private Landfill Tuesday

Residents concerned about a proposed private landfill are continuing that fight Tuesday night.

Concerns are still being expressed by some residents who live near Stewarts Meadows just west of College Station.

In July the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality held a public meeting with representatives from Brazos Valley Recycling on hand to discuss their proposal to turn a 42 acre site into an 11-story mound of construction waste.

The landfill would hold items such as lumber and construction debris but no household garbage on the company's property.

Brazos Valley Recycling Owner Charles Mancuso says right now the debris is already being trucked into his place but they have to send it to the landfill in Grimes County. He says the hole where the debris would be dumped would take at least 15 years to fill in before it would grow taller than the area around it.

It would also be constantly covered with dirt, resembling a grass hill once it's finished.

That meeting is happening Tuesday at 7 P.M. at the Precinct 4 Volunteer Fire Station located at 6357 Raymond Stotzer Parkway or F-M 60 and is open to the public.
