Martin County Landfill Will be Closed on Saturday’s

Staff Report

MARTIN COUNTY - Martin County residents will have to come up with a different plan to get rid of their junk.

That's because Stanton officials say they have no choice but to close the local landfill on Saturdays.

Earlier this month, the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality told city officials that their permit does not include Saturdays.

The city has been operating the landfill Monday through Saturday for the last 17 years.

Officials tell NewsWest 9, they are working on getting a waiver from the State so that it can re-open on Saturdays.

Until then, the landfill will only be open Monday through Friday.
