Will Boyd County, Kentucky hire a full time landfill trash inspector?

Some residents are still concerned about the Big Run Landfill's plan to ship tons of east coach trash in by trains.

County leaders and landfill operators say the proposal is safe and legal and the trash will be wrapped, inspected and cleaner than any local waste dumped there.

But some residents who are worried about possible hazardous medical and radioactive wastes slipping in, want a full time inspector at the landfill.

The Boyd County Commission says it will look into the idea.
