MERCER CO., Pa. (WYTV) – It looks like a new landfill will be coming to Mercer County.
The Pennsylvania Department of Environmental Protection approved an application, which will allow Tri-County Landfill Inc. to build a new landfill where the old one used to operate in the ’80s.
It’s located in Liberty and Pine townships. The waste — which is in old, unlined disposal areas — will be relocated to new, lined and monitored disposal cells.
The landfill will operate 24 hours a day, six days a week.
