waste: fly ash and fluff. Fly ash is a term for coal combustion products, and

Monday evening, residents weighed in.
"No other state wants it,
that's why this is going to be coming. Trucks from the northeast, all the way

every day; folks in the area say that more traffic won't help.
Residents are demanding
that the county reject the proposal.
The landfill owner's
attorney also attended the meeting. He told 8News that the residents have valid
concerns, but Skinquarter will be extremely cautious.
