    Even a landfill eventually reaches its expiration date. One, past due, was a topic of lengthy discussion at the July 22 Quincy City Commission meeting.
    The commissioners considered closing Cell 9 of the Quincy-Byrd landfill. The 5.4-acre cell is one of 11 constituting the entire landfill.
    Cell 9 was originally permitted as a Class III landfill, a designation allowing for the dumping of household waste. The cell, however, was never used in this fashion, serving instead as a repository for land clearing-debris or LCD.
