Huron Landfill To Take Some Of Beef Plant's Waste
ABERDEEN, SD -

The city of Huron has agreed to accept some waste material from the Northern Beef Packers plant in Aberdeen.

Huron will be paid $32.50 per ton of paunch, the undigested food in the belly of animals when they are slaughtered.

Brown County commissioners this summer asked the plant to consider alternatives to the county landfill because of the waste's odor. At the Huron landfill, the paunch will be included in a composting program.

The $109 million beef plant being built south of Aberdeen has been delayed by numerous problems, from lawsuits to flooding. Construction is nearly done but officials have yet to announce an opening date.
