City pauses acceptance of construction debris at landfill
The City of Durant’s construction and demolition disposal site will be closed until further notice.
Following a quarterly inspection by the Department of Environmental Quality, landfill staff were advised to close the site once the 0.5 acre cell reached maximum capacity. The temporary closure became effective on Monday, July 3.
“With the growth of the city, the cell has filled sooner than anticipated,” said Public Works Director Phillip Hightower, “However, the process to construct a new cell is underway.”
The transfer site will remain open and the collection of residential and commercial trash will not be affected.
