A New York rail company, Chartwell International, proposes to excavate limestone and coal from a closed southeastern Ohio mine in order to make room for waste hauled by rail from the east coast. The Lawrence Economic Development Corp. that represents the host community expects the project to provide much needed jobs and revenue. Chartwell based in Syosset, N.Y., bought Belville Mining, owner of the mine, and its corporate parent, E-Rail Logistics, for $9.2 million in September 2005. Ohio is among the top five importers of waste at 3.1 million tons in 2004 up from 2.5 million tons a year earlier.
