The Saufley Landfill is not complying with a judge’s orders to meet the terms of its permit. Neighbors of the West Pensacola landfill have fought for months to shut it down after a fire there focused attention on the dump. Neighbors considered the operation an eyesore and health threat.
Florida DEP took the landfill operators, Louisiana Investment Group LLC, to court in August because of the fires and the huge mounds of debris. The judge gave them 60 days to comply.
They have not so DEP is expected to take them back to court.
