Casella is thinking of expanding the footprint of the company's Southbridge landfill beyond town limits and onto five acres in Charlton.
"It is an area that conceptually could be used for landfill space in the future. To include that in our MEPA filing without a discussion with the town is not something we wanted to do," landfill site manager Tracy Markham told selectmen Tuesday.
Casella Waste Systems operates the landfill at 165 Barefoot Road in Southbridge. Ms. Markham said the site is at a phase where a report that discloses plans must be filed under the Massachusetts Environmental Policy Act.
