Quincy city commissioners will continue to pursue a license from the Florida Department of Environmental Protection to reopen the air curtain incinerator at Byrd Landfill. The vote was unanimous during the Jan. 26 regular meeting. The city receives an average of 220 tons of yard trash and land clearing debris into the landfill each year.
Opponents think the city should find alternatives before seeking a permit.
James Maloy, president of Gadsden County Concerned Citizens, told commissioners that he opposes incinerators at both state and local levels.
