Patch: Bankhead “TRASH” Transfer Station
The Bankhead “TRASH” Transfer Station (BTS) has raised its ugly head again and has found its way back on the Cobb County Commission agenda to be approved to accept household waste in our community. As you may recall, the commission voted unanimously, with one abstention, last summer to deny the zoning and land use applications of the Bankhead “TRASH” Transfer Station. The company’s attorney’s appealed the decision. In Cobb County, all filed cases are required to go to mediation. We were given assurances that the County would vigorously defend the decision of the Commission and that county officials would allow us to take part in or keep us aware of when the mediation occurred and what transpired. These promises were not kept.
