Concerns about the Sampson County Landfill were addressed this week as part of the county’s planning session, a talk that served to dispel some misconceptions and shine the light on some lesser-known aspects of an operation many utilize and still many others pass by regularly traveling N.C. 24.
Commissioner Harry Parker previously voiced some concerns regarding the landfill and said earlier this week that he felt the planning session was a good forum for the board to receive information and have a general discussion with Bryan Wuester, manager for the Sampson County Landfill, which is operated by Raleigh-based Waste Industries.
“That is my district and my constituents are very interested in that area,” Parker said. “They had some questions.”
“It is a big business and there is a lot goes on there,” said Wuester. “People don’t realize how complex an operation it is.”
