110913 new landfill cell.jpg

This is “cell 8” at the Raleigh County landfill, off Ragland Road, just outside Beckley. The Raleigh County Solid Waste Authority explained Friday that the new section will begin receiving waste in spring 2014. The 800,000-cubic-yard cell should hold about four years’ worth of trash. The landfill itself has the capacity to expand for the next couple hundred years.
