The Ohio EPA is asking for the public's input on a proposed landfill that is looking to be built west of State Route 11, south of State Route 45, at White Road in Madison Township in Columbiana County.

A solid waste landfill is one that accepts community, commercial, and agricultural, including waste from households.

The public is encouraged to weigh in on a draft permit to install and operate that would allow West Point Renewables, LLC to construct and operate a municipal solid waste landfill if approved.

Since this is a new facility, Ohio EPA will host two separate meetings: an information session and a formal public hearing.

Information Session
Thursday, February 29
6:00 p.m.
West Point Church of the Nazarene
13334 West Point Road, Lisbon

Public Hearing
Thursday, April 4
6:00 p.m.
West Point Church of the Nazarene
13334 West Point Road, Lisbon

West Point Renewables is seeking a permit for a municipal solid waste landfill at the proposed location with paved and unpaved roadways. If approved, the landfill would have more than 10 million cubic yards of waste design capacity, a 4,000-ton-per-day maximum waste acceptance rate, and a 1,500-ton-per-day average acceptance rate.
