As Julie Rose of WFAE reports, Matthews residents are none-too-pleased that owners of the medical waste incinerator near Monroe Road will probably meet new EPA standards in 2014. Mecklenburg County Air Quality Director Don Willard said Healthcare Waste Solutions has been a good operator of the incinerator.

The incinerator is located jest east of Interstate 485 near the Union County border.
