Stonecrest residents stage protest against Metro Green Recycling plant

protest

About 100 demonstrators protested outside Stonecrest City Hall today(Aug. 10), demanding that city officials issue a stop work order for the construction of the Metro Green Recycling Plant at 2450 Miller Road. The protest was held at 6:30 p.m. as the City Council met virtually for its Work Session/City Council meeting. Angry residents say the plant will bring pollution, truck traffic, noise and lower residential property values. Residents are demanding that city officials halt the construction immediately. The city, however, is seeking a judge’s ruling on temporary restraining order for Metro Green to cease all activities as the city investigate the permitting process of of the project. The request for the temporary restraining order will be heard by  DeKalb Superior Court Judge Tangela Barrie on Wednesday, Aug.  26, 2020 at 1:30 p.m.

    Thanks so much for covering this story. I am a resident of the area that is involved and it is heartbreaking and scary to see what is happening in our community. We had no knowledge or say before this project began. Thank you again for your interest.
