A PROPOSED LANDFILL in south Madison County might not be dead, but it appears to be mostly dead for now.
Last week the permit board for the Mississippi Department for Environmental Quality (MDEQ) voted unanimously to deny Mark Bilberry’s permit application to put in a landfill on his property off North County Line Road.
Bilberry’s solid-waste landfill would have been the third in the county. The Little Dixie landfill borders Bilberry’s land, and the city of Canton has a landfill too.
