State environmental regulators will hold a hearing on the proposal at 6 p.m. Thursday, Oct. 18, at the Green Forest Depot meeting room at 800 Broadway.

Persons who attended a pizza party thrown by Terra Resource Services of Russellville Tuesday say they were told that wastes would be from the Tyson Food plants at Green Forest and Berryville.

The permit would allow spreading of "liquid post-processing food waste, residuals, and DAF skimmings; post-processing animal and pet food waste; poultry processing water; grease trap waste; feed and grain mill waste; hatchery waste and pretreatment waste and residues.

The 1,455 acres to receive Terra Resource waste are identified in the draft permit by the last names of the owners: A. Hale, T. Ferguson, J. Hale and H. Norris.
