WASHINGTON TOWNSHIP, Mich. (AP) - Warren officials say they’re eyeing a new location for yard waste including grass clippings after plans for a composting facility in northern Macomb County were withdrawn.

The Macomb Daily of Mount Clemens reports (https://bit.ly/1JTvvVE ) the update from Warren Mayor James Fouts came Thursday, the day a public hearing was scheduled in Washington Township related to the issue. He says plans for a facility there were called off after area opposition.

The South Macomb Disposal Authority, which oversees trash disposal for five Macomb County communities including Warren, had raised the idea for a compost site on a capped municipal landfill.

Officials don’t plan to say where the new location might be until an application is filed with the Michigan Department of Environmental Quality. Some say there’s a shortage of compost sites.
