Waste Management Pulls Plug on Appeal of DEP’s Approval of County Solid Waste PlanWaste Management Pulls Plug on Appeal of DEP’s Approval of County Solid Waste Plan
August 13, 2015
After more than two years of litigation, Waste Management has pulled the plug on its appeal of the state Department of Environmental Protection’s (DEP) approval of the revised Clearfield County solid waste management plan.
On Aug. 7, the Environmental Hearing Board accepted Waste Management’s withdrawal of the appeal. It also cancelled the trial scheduled to be heard Sept. 29 on the matter, said Solicitor Kim Kesner during Tuesday’s regular Clearfield County Commissioners’ meeting.
Approximately two years ago, Waste Management filed an appeal of the DEP’s approval of the county’s revised 10-year solid waste management plan. Waste Management objected to the county’s “innovative” approach to support integrated waste management programs, said Kesner.
