ALBUQUERQUE (KRQE) – The city says it’s withdrawing a zoning change for a garbage transfer station in the North Valley, but the fight’s still not over for residents.
The city wants to turn a 22-acre property at the corner of Edith and Griegos into a transfer station. Dump trucks would drop off loads of trash, then a tractor-trailer would haul them to the landfill west of town.
The plan has many neighbors concerned about increased traffic, pollution, odor and littering.
According to the Albuquerque Journal, the city still plans to try building the transfer center under the current zoning rules, which allows manufacturing.
