The North Carolina Attorney General's Office denies that a recent more stringent state landfill law is unconstitutional as declared in a lawsuit filed by Waste Industries, filed last December. At issue is $13.5 million that the company has already spent on a landfill project in Camden County. Camden County signed a contract with Waste Industries subsidiary Black Bear Disposal in November 2002 to build a landfill that could accept as much as 10,000 tons of waste per day from other states. It would have been the largest landfill in the state. Waste Industries bought the 1,060-acre site for $6.5 million in 2004.
