Folks in Claiborne Co might want to attend the public meeting at Thomas Walker High School Oct. 11 at 6:30 pm. A proposed recycling plant in Rose Hill, VA ran by Green USA Recycling and the Lee Co. Industrial Development Authority could mean more trucks on your roads. They propose processing up to 750,000 tons of material. That material could be coming through your county.

Check out Jonesville,VA Topix.
Lee County (VA) Industrial Development authority is on Facebook and on the web as is GreenUSA Recycling.
All that material has to get to Rose Hill some way and there are only a few major roads. I doubt Virginia is going to give TN any money to maintain their roads. Just saying.....

What's the point?

Should trucks be restricted to operating within only ONE state?

The US wouldn't have much of an economy if that were the case.

Where would the peperoni slices come from that go on that Dominoes pizza you're always eating?

If the trucks run thru TN they have to pay highway use tax to the state. Who knows they may have to buy fuel from local business to put in their truck. I say they have as much right to use the highway as you do.

Maybe this plant will create jobs and encourage people to recycle.
