Demolition landfull gets the go-ahead after years of opposition


BLYTHE TOWNSHIP, SCHUYLKILL COUNTY (WBRE/WYOU)- A demolition landfill gets greenlighted after years of going back and fourth in court.

Commonwealth court dismissed the Borough of Saint Clair’s appeal against the landfill. St. Clair has been fighting the construction of the landfill for the past 14 years, spending more than one million dollars.

Borough leaders tell Eyewitness News they have no comment at this time.

One of the main reasons the borough opposed the sit was because it will bring more traffic to the area. Construction of the Blythe Recycling and Demolition Site is now underway on Burma Road in Schuylkill County.
