COVENTRY, Vt. (AP) - A new certificate has been given to Vermont’s largest landfill to operate for another 10 years.

Officials tell The Caledonian Record (https://bit.ly/1BXj87N ) the certification will carry the operator of the Coventry landfill, the New England Waste Services of Vermont, into a new phase of expansion.

The certificate allows the waste service to take in up to 600,000 tons of waste annually at the landfill on Airport Road.

Jeff Bourdeau with the State Department of Environmental Conservation says the landfill took in more than 400,000 tons last year.

Bourdeau says the waste service will be seeking a change in its certificate in the future because plans to expand south toward the airport are already underway.

But it would require a new certificate and an amendment to the landfill’s permit.
