Pen Argyl Borough in Pennsylvania has approved a new agreement from Waste Management Inc. that would give the borough up to $11 million over nine years to compensate for its location near the company's Grand Central Sanitary Landfill in Plainfield Township. Most of the money would be paid only if the township and the state approve the company's pending expansion request. The borough will continue to oppose the 42-acre expansion. The final arrangement involves initial payments of up to $800,000 and per-ton payments for nine years.
