City put on notice to clean up landfill dust complaints

Posted: Updated:

After years of complaints from Harrison residents, Chattanooga and two private companies have been put on notice by county environmental officials for air pollution created at landfills on Birchwood Pike.

The city owns and operates a sanitation landfill there, but a construction and demolition landfill owned by the company Environmental Materials and managed by Santek Environmental of Tennessee also operates at the site.

The city and the private companies were visited Aug. 1 by an investigator with the Chattanooga/Hamilton County Air Pollution Control Bureau after residents complained that trucks leaving the landfills were creating large dust clouds.
