Meeting set at Nashville on proposed landfill expansion

The Arkansas Department of Environmental Quality will
hold an informal public meeting
at Nashville Jan. 21, to
discuss the proposed expansion
of the Upper Southwest
Regional Solid Waste Management
District Landfill in
Howard County.
The meeting will begin at
6 p.m. in the Green Room at
Nashville City Park, 1301 W.
Johnson St.
The District is proposing a
lateral expansion of its existing
Class 1 landfill totaling approximately
43.5 acres, which
will increase both the size
and capacity for the facility.
The landfill is located about
10 miles north of Nashville
at 319 Landfill Rd., off State
Highway 369. The ADEQ has
determined that the District’s
pre-application for expansion
is administratively complete,
which allows the pre-application
process to go forward.
The facility currently is
permitted to accept nonhazardous
household, commercial,
and industrial waste
as defined by Regulation 22
of the Arkansas Pollution
Control and Ecology Commission.
The purpose of the meeting
is to provide interested
persons with the opportunity
to meet with ADEQ staff
and informally discuss the
agency’s solid waste permitting
process, as well as the
proposed expansion of the
landfill.
Since the meeting is not
a formal event, no prepared
statements are necessary,
and the proceedings will
not be recorded. After the
pre-application process,
if the District develops
and submits a full
application, additional
public notices and formal
comment periods
will be provided before
a final permit decision
is made.
Additional information
on the proposed
expansion and the permitting
process is available
