CRUMPLER — The Ashe County Landfill will be closed for the replacement of scales Friday, Sept. 13, and Saturday, Sept. 14, according to a notice from Environmental Services Director Scott Hurley.
Interim County Manager Adam Stumb said during the regular meeting of the Ashe County Board of Commissioners on Tuesday, Sept. 3, that the replacement of the scales represents a $50,000 improvement at the landfill. The current scales have been in use for more than 30 years, Stumb said.
“They’re due for replacement,” Stumb said. “Scott and I and others talked about ways to not close the landfill, but we don’t see away around that.”
He noted that convenience centers around the county will remain open.
