MAYSVILLE, JONES COUNTY -

A public hearing is scheduled to talk about a draft permit for a proposed landfill in Maysville.

The hearing is set for Tuesday at  6 p.m. in the Maysville Elementary School gymnasium.

Green Recycling Solutions, LLC, has complied with the N.C. Solid Waste Management Rules required for the application of a permit for a new construction and demolition landfill facility on N.C. Highway 17 near White Oak River Road in Maysville.

The proposed 16-acre landfill facility would have an operational life of about 30 years and accept waste from Jones, Craven, Carteret, Onslow, Duplin and Lenoir counties.

The waste materials permitted for disposal at the proposed C&D Landfill include land clearing and inert debris and construction and demolition debris resulting solely from construction, remodeling, repair or the demolition of pavement, buildings or other structures.

Hazardous wastes or other banned wastes such as municipal or industrial solid wastes, liquid waste, medical waste, radioactive waste, PCB wastes, yard trash, white goods, septage, sludge, and special wastes as defined in state law are not approved for disposal.

Prior to disposal, waste materials would be segregated for recovery at a treatment and processing facility located on the property that was previously permitted for construction in February 2013.
