Many residents of the Mill Creek and Keene areas don’t want a trash and recycling center near their homes. They showed up in force Wednesday, and persuaded the Albemarle Supervisors to extend an existing contract for a solid waste transfer station in Ivy. The supervisors have unanimously agreed the Ivy facility should stay in business through June 2015.  John Martin (pictured) of Free Union urged the board to wait a year before making a decision.  The supervisors also favor suspending plans for a new facilities in Mill Creek or Keene. The county has been considering three convenience centers that would take the place of the Ivy station.
