Some east Nashville residents are opposed to a proposed trash facility that may soon move into the area near Ellington Parkway.
Waste Connections recently submitted an application to Metro codes to purchase property located off of Apex Street.
The company will reportedly act as a middle ground before local trash is transported to a landfill.
The Cleveland Park Neighborhood Association sponsored a meeting Thursday night at the Metro East Precinct to discuss the plan.
Karen Morrissey who grew up in east Nashville said she is against the trash facility.
"We just don't think it's a good idea to bring trash back into that neighborhood," she told Nashville's News 2.
However, Waste Connections said homeowners have the wrong idea about how a waste transfer station operates.
"I think the biggest misconception is that a solid waste transfer station is a landfill or is a facility that stores solid waste, but that's not what it is," said Chris Ruane, Waste Connections Vice President.
Metro Codes still has to approve the facility before the company can open.
