The Pleasant River Solid Waste Disposal District (PRSWDD) board of directors met late Monday, July 13 and had in hand the latest withdrawal proposal from two towns that are opting to bow out of the six-town trash cooperative formed in the 1990s after state regulations outlawed municipal landfills. The withdrawing towns are Jonesport and Columbia Falls. Still active in PRSWDD are Addison, Beals and Jonesboro. Columbia voted last month to get out, but formal negotiations around that move are pending.
