GULFPORT, Miss. (AP) - Harrison County supervisors are opposed
to BP dumping debris from the Gulf of Mexico oil spill into a local
The Sun Herald reports that the unified command has told local
officials that its preliminary plan called for putting debris into
the Pecan Grove landfill.
Supervisor Marlin Ladner said Monday that the landfill takes in
waste within 100 miles of here, so that would mean debris from
Mobile to New Orleans could be put there.
Ladner said he didn't know if the board could prohibit Pecan
Grove from being used but he is "stringently opposed' to it.
BP said every agency involved with unified command received
input about the best way and the best places to put the debris and
Pecan Grove was on a preapproved list of sites.
