ST. CHARLES (KMOX) -- The St. Charles County Council unanimously voted to deny the use permit needed to put a trash transfer station near Family Arena at Arena Pkwy. and Friedens Rd.
 
It would have allowed trucks to drop off thousands of tons of refuse a day in smaller loads -- so larger trucks could cart it off to area landfills.
 
Neighbors complained about the potential smell, noise and reduction in property values. 

St. Charles County commissioners voted to approve the "finding of facts" made by the county's planning and zoning commission, which recommended denial of the use permit.
