Tri-county program removes 330 tons of trash Since 2004, the Tri-County Illegal Dump Cleanup program has removed nearly 330 tons of old appliances, rusty pieces of metal, old tires and other trash from the region, according to the director of the regional waste authority.Well, Toby may be delighted that 330 tons of debris have been removed from the hollers and hillsides of Buchanan, Russell, and Dickenson Counties, but the people who live there might think otherwise.
Dickenson, Buchanan and Russell Counties, the three members of the Cumberland Plateau Waste Management Authority, participate in the program. Through the project, counties share resources to clean up illegal dumpsites. Toby Edwards, the authority’s director of waste management services, is delighted with its success.

330 tons of debris. The stuff John Carpenter movies are made of.
