Landfill cell closure underway in Carroll

-A A +A

By Christopher Brooke, Reporter

In a maneuver not unlike covering the turf in a baseball stadium during a rain delay, five of 14 workers grab the end and sides of a roll of 22-foot-wide white plastic sheeting and pull briskly to cover a swath of this approximately 50-foot-high hill of garbage and dirt.
