Birchwood II C&D Landfill is now open to the public for all construction and debris disposal.
TEDAC approved the opening as of Thursday. Hamilton County has not had a C&D landfill for three and a half years due to the closure of Santek.
"Greg Krum, Bill Lind, John Woods and Charlie Hunt saw a big need for Birchwood II to
be open," officials said. "They decided to take on the task of opening this landfill."
Mr. Krum and Mr. Lind are also owners of Tennessee Waste Haulers. Mr. Woods is the owner the Chattanooga Lookouts and other commercial projects in Chattanooga.
Birchwood II Landfill is located at 9327 Birchwood Pike in Harrison.
