City of Elkins Taking Final Steps on Landfill Closure Plan

Posted: Updated:
ELKINS -

The City of Elkins is taking the final steps on its closure plan for the Elkins-Randolph County landfill.

The landfill last took garbage in September 2011.

Council members voted to close the landfill once it was full because they determined it would not be cost-effective for the city to expand it.

The city said it has received a closing permit from the West Virginia Department of Environmental Protection, and that it will use money from its escrow account and other funds to officially close the landfill.
