CHARLES TOWN, W.Va. - The Jefferson County landfill on Leetown Road is again accepting trash, this time as a transfer station, officials said Thursday night at the Jefferson County Commissioners meeting.
Dirk Stansbury, co-chairman of the Jefferson County Solid Waste Authority, said residents can haul their waste to the landfill where it is then picked up by Waste Management trucks.
The trash is then hauled to other landfills for disposal, he said.
Stansbury said lawn waste such as grass clippings, branches and brush also are being accepted at the facility.
The Solid Waste Authority operates at chipper to turn the lawn waste into a mulch.
Stansbury and co-chairman Jim McGowen said the Solid Waste Authority also is looking to market the waste to help raise money to meet expenses at the site.
