Warehime expresses concern about landfills' yard waste ban

April 29, 1994

Manchester Mayor Earl A. J. "Tim" Warehime followed the lead of several other county municipal leaders and expressed his concern about plans for county landfills to stop accepting yard waste.

Mr. Warehime said he was upset the county commissioners failed to notify the town about its recent decision to ban yard waste from county landfills effective May 1.

He and the Manchester Town Council must decide alternatives for the more than 1,000 trash hauling customers in the town.

"[The commissioners] didn't give us any notice," the mayor said.

Until the town can decide how to handle yard waste -- which the county says should be recycled rather than dumped in the landfill -- the mayor suggested residents take the waste to the landfill composting pile.
