More Canadian Trash Could be Coming to Michigan

By  | 

AP -- St. Clair County officials are fielding questions about their plan to process more Canadian trash at a Kimball Township landfill.

County commissioners earlier this month approved a three-year contract with Canadian company Enertec Inc. to bring more trash to the Smiths Creek Sanitary Landfill.

The board chairman says he's considering holding a public meeting to address residents' concerns. He says he will invite officials to visit the landfill.

County officials say the deal will create a 20-percent increase in trash, which will boost revenue. The county spends $2.5 million to $3 million to operate the landfill annually. The landfill makes about $2.3 million a year.
