MOUNTAIN OF TRASH COVERS PORTION OF ABANDONED LANDFILL (TIMESphoto By Ken Good) '· . . . w h e r e refuse collected during city-wide sweep last month teas dumped, creating a problem that hasn't yet been solved by city officials At Springdale Clean Up Leaves A Dirty Problem By P E G G Y F K I Z K K L L 'TIMES Staff Writer SPRINGDALE -- Trash nt the city's old landfill site is ' piled "neck deep'' in plfices. according to Mayor J'ark Phillips. The site was used last month to d u m p approximately 500 trucfcloads of trash collected during the city-wide clean up campaign. Because the city-owned property is unauthorised as a solid waste disposal point by the stale Department of Pollution Control and Ecology, Ihe dumping of the refuse was not Jegal, according to a .spokesman from thu pollution control agency. The Arkansas Solid Waste D i s p o s a l Code specifically slates "no person shall dispose of solid waste at any disposal site or facility other than a disposal site or facility for which a permit has been issued by the department," NASHVILLE, Avk.

The trash from the clean up was dumped directly onto the ground and not buried. Phillips said ihc cost of burying the refuse would be expensive as it would involve the bulldozer at $25 cost of a hour. He said the trash was being used fill actual gullies, dumping However, the site was niop a hill Asked if the city would eventually cover the trash in an otherwise scenic setting. Phillips said maybe. Pressed f u r t h e r , he said he would not make a commitment. Phillips cited tbe high cost of disposing the trash in the stale-appro vert sanitary landfill as the reason for dumping the refuse rather than transporting it io the private landfill operated by Simray Sanitation. At first, Phillips estimated it would have cost between $10.000 and $15.000 in fees to the landfill operators to dispose of the waste collected during the clean up campaign. lie, then admitted he did not know what the cost would have been. However, Sunray Sanitation o p e n e d i t s landfill free of c h a r g e to Washington County, which held a countywide clean up the day before Springdale held its drive. Harold Duggar of the county sanitation department said the landfill operators did not charge the county the dump truckload usual because per they told him they wanted to help out in the area-wide clean up campaign. Some of the trash collected in rural Washington County was taken to the state-approved Landfill in fayelteville as well. The county did pay the usual $5 per load foe there, Duggar said. Fayetleville, which held its city-wide clean up campaign the same da yas the county, disposed of all a p p r o v e d its trash sanitary at the landfill operated by C and L Landfill C otn pa ny. Th e city paid the owners $205 for the use of the landfill for one full day, according to a spokesman from the city's sanitation department. In an earlier conversation this week, Phillips said the stale Department of Pollution Control and Ecology had told him to b u rn Ih e a stes th a t we r e dumped during the clean up In checking this, the TIMES learned that state officials did not know the wastes from the clean up campaign had been open dumped and had not tolc the city to burn the trash. A department spokesman telephoned the mayor and toTd him this. "It was a pretty big misunderstanding," lie said. Open burning of wastes prohibited by the state's air pollution control code. The spokesman added thai the mayor said he was please* the city would not have to hum the trash. As for what will be done about the dumped refuse in an unauthorized area, fielc representatives from the Prai rie Grove district office of the Pollution Control Agency saic they will investigate the matter.
