2017-09-16 / Word on the Street


Editor’s note: Each week, we are venturing out onto the streets of Roxboro looking for Personians to feature and to answer our question of the week for one of our regular features, Word on the Street.

This week’s question: The regional landfill in Person County takes trash from a 60-mile radius. Do you think it is time to close it, even if that means you would pay higher property taxes?

Wayne Ross

No, not as long as it is not at capacity.

Chase Whitten

Yes, I think it would be better to pay more taxes to get rid of it.

Greg O’Connor

Depends on the amount of tax, how much more it would cost to ship it to another county.

Jason Torain

Yes, most people I talk to feel the same way, especially those who live near it.
