New Trash Transfer Station: Downtown?

The owners of the Harry A. Wright salvage yard, next to Coiners’ in the Woolen Mills, figure they’ve got just the solution to the Ivy Landfill’s closing of the construction debris section: they’ll accept it at their place of business. At 150 tons per day, the plan isn’t exactly popular. And under city zoning regulations, it’s not what you’d call legal, either. C’ville planning director Jim Tolbert said that it just can’t happen, and has sent a letter to the entrepreneurs to that effect. The story is in today’s Progress.
