Meeting set for landfill permit in Hedgesville



MARTINSBURG, W.Va. - A public meeting will be held April 23 in Hedgesville, W.Va., to review the proposed renewal of a permit to allow LCS Services, Inc. of Pittsburgh, Pa., to operate the landfill in Hedgesville.

The public meeting was requested by state Sen. John Unger, D-Berkeley. It will held by the state Division of Environmental Protection Office of Waste Management.

Such meetings are "an excellent opportunity for citizens to discuss issues with the agency," said DEP Director Mike O. Callaghan in a release.

LCS is licensed to dispose of 9,900 tons of waste monthly in its landfill 1.4 miles from Hedgesville. Both written and oral statements will be accepted by DEP before deciding whether to renew the permits. The public comment period ends May 3. A decision on the renewal is expected within 30 days after that.
