HARRISON COUNTY, MS (WLOX) - We have a significant development tonight about where all that oil is being dumped. BP and Waste Management have agreed to no longer deposit any more oil waste in the Pecan Grove landfill.
That decision was made after a two hour meeting between the two companies and representatives from Harrison County. Harrison County Supervisor Marlin Ladner was part of those talks.
"I'm happy and I'm satisfied, and I'm glad we finally reached an agreement," he said.
Ladner was told that BP would try to recycle, or reuse the oil materials, if that was possible.
He stressed, "It will not go into any place in Harrison County."
