GROVE CITY — The Department of Environmental Protection will host a public meeting and hearing on Monday, Jan. 28,  to hear input about Tri-County Landfill Inc.’s proposal to expand its municipal waste landfill operations in Pine and Liberty townships, Mercer County.

A 6 p.m. public meeting will be followed by a 7:30 p.m. hearing at Grove City High School at 511 Highland Ave. in Grove City, Mercer County.

The company’s proposal for expanding landfill operations in its existing 99-acre permitted disposal area includes the excavation and relocation of waste from an old 44.5-acre unlined area to new lined disposal cells. The facility would continue to operate at its current acceptance rate of 4,000 tons per day.

“During the meeting portion of the evening, company officials will answer questions about the project and DEP staff will clarify the application review process,’’ DEP Northwest Regional Director Kelly Burch said. “Then, beginning at 7:30 p.m., area residents will have an opportunity to present oral testimony about the applications.’’

People who don’t attend the hearing can submit written testimony to DEP through Feb. 8.

Call DEP at 814-332-6340.
