MADISON CO., Miss. (WLBT) - Mississippi Department of Environmental Quality permit board denied a controversial landfill application.

The permit was filed by NCL Waste, who planned the landfill off of North County Line Road. MDEQ denied the permit at a meeting Tuesday morning.

McGee said because there are already two landfills in Madison County, he doesn’t think a third is necessary.

WLBT’s David Kenney is at the meeting and will have more details tonight.
