Orange County Voice

Missing the Point, Missing an Opportunity

Last night, the Orange County Board of Commissioners voted unanimously to set June 30, 2013, as the closing date of the county’s municipal waste landfill, and to pursue a costly interlocal agreement to ship our trash to Durham’s waste transfer station.

Rural Orange: Talking Trash Survey

Haven't seen much buzz on this topic, and don't know who's behind Orange County Voice, but there's a group in rural Orange passing out information that Orange county is considering what could be some pretty radical changes in the way trash is handled for non-incorporated residents. If this is true, rural residents really need to voice their opinions and concerns.

Fundraiser for Orange County Voice

Via the OrangeChat blog:

Orange County Voice, a citizens group organized against siting an airport or a trash depot in southwest Orange County, will hold a fundraiser Saturday at Harry's Market to help pay legal fees to fight the county's plan to site a garbage transfer station on Highway 54 west of White Cross.

The sale and raffle will take place from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Saturday, Dec. 20 at Harry's Market, 3300 N.C. Highway 54. Art and baked goods will be on sale, and musicians will be playing. $10 raffle tickets will give a chance to win art, pottery, wood-working or gift certificates from local businesses such as Harry's and Fiesta Grill. The raffle drawing will happen at 2 p.m.

For more information, call Harry's at (919) 932-7025 or visit
