Local legislators and manufacturers have expressed their opposition to a project that could bring a coal ash dump to Pickens County.

The change will allow the disposal of 175,339 tons of waste material per year at the site at S.C. Highway 93 and Cartee Road — more than twice the amount originally approved 14 years ago.

The additional tonnage will allow the landfill to accept waste from Greenville, Anderson and Oconee counties
