Tire-melting plant creates controversy in south Columbus.

Staff Report

South Columbus residents are fighting a plan to bring the city's trash-burning plant back to life.

The state environmental protection agency granted a preliminary permit to turn the plant into a tire-melting operation. Rather than burn the tires, the plant would heat them in an airtight chamber, with little pollution. But residents say there's no proof of that.

A meeting was held Thursday night at Finland Middle School to figure out ways to stop the plant from starting up.

"They need to go away, bottom line, simple as that," said Bob Wilson, who is opposed to the tire-melting proposal.

The Solid Waste Authority of Central Ohio currently leases the plant. They say the plan will not be approved if it is not environmentally sound. They are carefully reviewing the proposal.

The EPA will hold a public hearing before making a final decision.
