Group Holds Public Discussion on Albemarle Co. Trash


Feb. 4, 2014

The League of Women Voters held a public discussion on trash in Albemarle County on Tuesday.

The meeting was a chance for citizens to have a dialogue about the future of trash management in the county.

The Albemarle Co. Board of Supervisors recently decided to have Rivanna Solid Waste Authority close the Ivy Transfer Station, and have a private contractor open three "convenience centers" for trash.

The possible locations for these convenience centers have some residents up in arms.

Several community leaders attended the event, including Supervisors Ken Boyd and Jane Dittmar, and Charlottesville City Councilors Kristin Szakos and Bob Fenwick.
