The Ada County,Idaho, commission is reconsidering Allied Wasteâ€™s plan to open a 560-acre landfill, according to a report in the Idaho Statesman. The commission, which initially denied the waste companyâ€™s application on a technicality, heard testimony on June 14 from a dozen people all opposed to the landfill. Representatives from two federal agencies said that building a landfill near the Boise airport will increase the risk of bird and airplane collisions. â€śBird strikes cause $450 million in aircraft damage annually,â€ť said Shane Koyle, a wildlife biologist with the U.S. Department of Agriculture, in the report. The commission voted to close the public record and continue discussion on June 28.
