Landfill May Become Park

You've heard the phrase from trash to treasure. Well, that's exactly what could be happening to a piece of property in Dare County.

The Bowerstown Landfill on Roanoke Island is currently used as a transfer station and recycling depot. But that’s coming to an end later this year. Monday night the Manteo Rotary Club held a public meeting to discuss possible uses for the station, including turning it into a nature trail.

The Rotary Club will eventually turn its suggestions over to the board of commissioners who will make a decision on what to do with the land.
