Council Approves Waste Plant To Move To Haynes-Trinity Neighborhood

Posted at 9:41 PM, Sep 04, 2018

Metro Nashville Council Members approved a controversial ordinance that will move a non-hazardous liquid waste plant to a new location.

The ordinance allowing Onsite Environmental to move to the 2800 block of Whites Creek Pike in the Haynes-Trinity neighborhood was approved Tuesday night.

Members of the Haynes-Trinity neighborhood coalition fought the ordinance out of concerns for their health. 

The company's attorney said the move will have minimal affect on residents. Due to the re-development of the area next to the Cumberland River, Onsite Environmental needs to move to meet new zoning requirements.
