BRUNSWICK COUNTY -- After three years of debate among residents and lawmakers, some people in Brunswick County were able to claim victory against the Hugo Neu landfill company. Tonight those residents will speak out against yet another proposed landfill. A number of people who live in and around the town of northwest called the newsroom today, already irate at the possibility of another proposed landfill in their neighborhood. Back in April Hugo Neu decided to abandon its project in the town of Navassa after residents made it clear they did not want trash in their backyard. We're told this newly proposed landfill will be for construction debris. Tonight, a public meeting will be held to discuss the possibility of building a construction and demolition landfill on a site off Mt. Misery road -- just two miles from the Hugo Neu property. That meeting will begin at 7 o'clock, at the Perkinsville Baptist Church on Blue Banks Loop. A representative of the Cape Fear Citizens for a Safe Environment told us today the company has plans to ask the northwest town council to annex the site. She said that's the same tactic Hugo Neu used when trying to get their foot in the door in Navassa.
