Canton Vaud has confirmed it is looking at a site on the Vaud/Geneva border which could be used as a landfill for the next 10 years.

The site is currently agricultural land straddling the communes of Commugny and Chavannes-de-Bogis. 

The landfill will only be used for inert waste, such as excavation material and construction waste, such as concrete and glass. 

The canton says a final decision is yet to be made and there are other sites under consideration.

Locals are expressing their concerns over the project, especially the expectation of a large number of heavy vehicles.
