Vermont-based Casella Waste Systems hopes to build a new 180-acre landfill in the town of Dalton, N.H., near Forest Lake State. The company is expected to meet with area residents on July 23 to discuss its plans.
The town has scheduled the July 23 public hearing to discuss an emergency temporary zoning and planning ordinance that would block the proposed landfill. After that hearing, the ordinance change will go for a townwide vote on July 30.
New Hampshire Public Radio reports that Casella said it is running out of space for trash in the area after voters in nearby Bethlehem rejected a plan to expand their landfill last year.
