Currituck Landfill

Currituck officials ask why no approval sought for landfill. A firm that wants to build the largest landfill in the state in Camden County hasn't asked neighboring Currituck County's approval. A spokesman for the company says the portion of the landfill in Currituck won't be used to bury garbage. Waste Industries vice president Ven Poole says the company's 50 acres in Currituck will be used as a wildlife refuge. The company has a 490-acre site it wants to make into a landfill in Camden
County. Officials in Currituck County had asked why the Raleigh-based
company hadn't sought approval from their board. They say a state
law requires landfill operators to get permission from all governments with territory in the dump site.
