Dayton, Ohio, officials this week are set to decide whether to approve a $10.5 million settlement from the operator of the Stony Hollow Landfill over a years-long dispute about fees.
Stony Hollow Landfill is a subsidiary of Waste Management. According to a Dayton Daily News report, the settlement agreement calls for Waste Management to make two payments of $5.25 million to the city to resolve a dispute that dates back more than 28 years, before Stony Hollow Landfill was built.
According to the report, the agreement resolves several legacy disputes on fee payments and refund claims and also creates several new requirements for the pre-treatment of Stony Hollow’s leachate and the transmission and disposal of the leachate at the city’s wastewater treatment plant.
