Community meeting on proposed convenience center on Esmont Road
ALBEMARLE COUNTY, Va. (CBS19 NEWS) -- Members of the community are invited to a public meeting about a proposed Southern Albemarle Convenience Center.
According to a release, the center would be designed to respond to the need for convenient, cost-effective residential recycling and waste disposal for that part of the county.
There will be a Zoom meeting about this proposal on Thursday at 6 p.m.
The proposed center would be located on Esmont Road, near the intersection of Scottsville, Plank and Coles Rolling roads.
The county says it would be built on a piece of undeveloped property that the county owns near the Keene Post Office.
The proposed service schedule would be Friday through Wednesday, with hours being adjusted seasonally.
The release says it would screened by deciduous trees and secured by privacy fencing with no site lighting and a small shed for an attendant on duty.
The release says the center would be able to accept bagged household waste, some recyclables, compostable food waste, tin and other metals, and some special waste.
It would cost $2 per 32-gallon bag or container.
If approved by the Albemarle County Planning Commission, it would take about a year to build.
