Wisconsin Board Approves Bigger Landfills

Madison, Wis. — The Wisconsin Natural Resources Board has voted, by a 4-3 vote, to approve a rule that would allow the size of landfills to increase, according to the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel. According to the paper, the rule would allow landfill operators to stack garbage 100 feet higher than they currently are allowed to. The rule still must be approved by state lawmakers.
