GULFPORT — Harrison County supervisors are opposed to BP dumping debris from the Gulf of Mexico oil spill into a local landfill.
The Sun Herald reports that the unified command has told local officials that its preliminary plan called for putting debris into the Pecan Grove landfill.
Supervisor Marlin Ladner said yesterday that the landfill takes in waste within 100 miles of here, so that would mean debris from Mobile to New Orleans could be put there.
Ladner said he didn’t know if the board could prohibit Pecan Grove from being used but he is “stringently opposed’ to it.
BP said every agency involved with unified command received input about the best way and the best places to put the debris and Pecan Grove was on a pre-approved list of sites.
