Update on Effort to Stop Metro Green Recycling

Metro Green Recycling Center has begun construction on the construction debris recycling center on Miller Road (just down the street from Miller Middle School).  Commissioner Mereda Davis-Johnson, some Stonecrest city council members, residents and others are trying to get its permit revoked. People are alarmed by the prospect of toxic air, foul smells and decreased property values. Superior Court will hear the request for a temporary restraining order on Monday.

The City of Stonecrest permitted the business without a public hearing.

The hearing will be broadcast Oct. 26, 9 a.m.via Zoom.   Click this link at that time to watch the hearing.
