HILLSVILLE — A private waste disposal company took issue with Hillsville’s annexing the busy Interstate 77 Exit 14 and taking business away from them.
But both the town council and Waste Industries worked out a deal to avoid taking the matter to court.
A settlement approved by members of Hillsville Town Council on Monday will pay a one-time sum to Waste Industries to keep the dispute from going any farther.
