CHAPEL HILL — Orange County Commissioners met Monday to work on
finding a location for a solid waste transfer station.

The facility will be a building where garbage trucks drop trash to be
gathered and shipped out of the county.

The board made a few changes to consultant recommendations, asking
that bicycle routes be considered earlier in the traffic analysis, and
that greater consideration be given to utility access and protected
watersheds.

Members of the public asked the board and consultants Olver Inc. about
emissions, environmental studies and the size of the site.
