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