A facility that’s been a destination for local trash since 1966 will keep operating for another three years.  The Albemarle Supervisors have told their staff to ask the state for a new permit for the old Ivy landfill, or turn it into a convenience center. Virginia’s Department of Environmental Quality has indicated the site on Dick Woods Road won’t  get a new permit unless it gets an upgrade. The existing permit is good through next year, and Supervisor Brad Sheffield is asking for more information. He wants to know who’s using the site on Dick Woods Road, and what they are bringing there. Angry homeowners convinced the county in January to abandon plans for a convenience center in the Mill Creek or Keene areas. Sheffield was a Wednesday guest on WINA’s Charlottesville…Right Now with Les Sinclair. The county’s Mark Graham (pictured) has advised the supervisors on solid waste disposal.
