BEND, Ore. (AP) — Oregon State University-Cascades plans to buy an old landfill in Bend for $1.

The Bulletin newspaper reports that the Deschutes County Commission approved the agreement Monday with a 2-1 vote. Oregon State University President Ed Ray is expected to sign the agreement later this week, finalizing it.

The 72-acre landfill property sits next to the university's 10-acre campus and an old pumice mine it owns.

The university hopes to expand by building in the former mine and on the old landfill.
