The Pennsylvania Department of Environmental Protection has approved Tri-County Industries Inc.'s application to operate a landfill in Liberty and Pine townships.

James Miller, director of the DEP Northwest Regional Office, said that the agency carefully reviewed the application and asked many questions before deciding it was satisfied that Tri-County would be meeting the requirements, according to a news release issued Monday morning.

Landfill operations cannot start until additional permits are approved for water discharge, wetlands and air emissions.
