Advanced Disposal has retracted its expansion request for the Arbor Hills Landfill in Michigan and plans to focus on addressing odor and traffic issues brought forward from local citizens. Once everyone is on the same page and satisfied with the plans, Advanced may submit another expansion.
In the near future, Advanced plans to host a series of meetings to spark up a conversation with the community about how Arbor Hills can make improvements to better both the community and the city.

On the heels of Northville Township's strongly worded resolution opposing expansion of Arbor Hills Landfill and a strong citizens' grassroots effort, facility owners at Advanced Disposal this week withdrew their request for expansion north of Six Mile in Salem Township.
"We felt our focus needs to address issues brought forward with the citizens," said Mark Nighbor, Advanced Disposal marketing and communications vice president. "They want us to address these issues - odors and traffic. We felt the request (for expansion) was being a distraction."
The decision to withdraw the request does not prevent Advanced Disposal from requesting expansion in the future, Nighbor said. "This makes sense now. We will focus on addressing the citizens and make them aware of our plans. We will get feedback and work on solutions."
