Goats in the Spotlight

NPC holds a conservation easement on part of the Clinton County Solid Waste Authority’s Wayne Township Landfill. The conservation easement area contains over 12 acres of wetlands.

The Landfill has used, and still uses, goats to control vegetation in some areas of the property. You may have seen them as you’ve driven past the landfill on Route 220. Mountain Home Magazine profiled the goats in a recent issue.

And while the program won’t focus on the goats, the speaker for NPC’s Clinton County Dinner this fall will be someone from the landfill. In addition to using goats to control vegetation, the landfill has several other initiatives underway to cut their costs and also reduce the environmental impact of the communities that use the landfill for their disposal.
