MDJ: Transfer Station Bid Denied
MARIETTA — The Cobb Board of Commissioners followed planning staff’s recommendation to deny a request to allow a south Cobb waste transfer station to start taking in household garbage.
The 4-0 vote will keep the Bankhead C&D Transfer Station, located on Veterans Memorial Highway near Discovery Boulevard, from taking in household waste. The facility had applied for a land use permit and heavy industrial zoning permit that would allow for the transfer.
“Our Community feels great. We feel like 150,000 tons of trash have been lifted off our shoulders,” said Shelia Edwards a resident of the Legacy at Riverline subdivision, located across Discovery Boulevard from the 8.16-acre site, which is currently zoned only to take in construction and demolition waste.
