Time is running short for Orange County Board of Commissioners to site a new waste transfer station.
Original plans, which included selecting a site Tuesday, projected that the station would be ready in May 2011, the same time the county landfill is expected to reach capacity.
But commissioners put off a final call for at least a month.
If there’s no station before the landfill is full, the county could face a waste management crisis.
