Meeting set at Nashville on proposed landfill expansion


The Arkansas Department of Environmental Quality (ADEQ) will hold an informal public meeting at Nashville Jan. 21, 2016, to discuss the proposed expansion of the Upper Southwest Regional Solid Waste Management District (“the 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.
