Protesters have not given up hope that Great Harwood's tip can be saved from closure.
County council bosses took the step close the tip, along with three others in Lancashire, on Thursday to save £520,000 a year.
But the town's county councillor Ciaran Wells has called in the decision – and is asking for a meeting in Great Harwood so bosses can hear people's objections.
He said: "We say the number of responses the county council got to its consultation merited a different decision to the one they gave.
"Also, there was no formal consultation with Hyndburn and a lot of the resultant fly-tipping which will result from this will be on the district's shoulders.
"I have a responsibility to do all I can to make sure the service people rely on stays in the area and this decision to close it is one which is letting people down."
Now the decision has been called in, a committee will assess the strength of the objectors' case and make recommendations to the county council – but they are not obliged to follow them.
More than 17,000 signatures were collected to protest the closure of the tips.
Of a further 4,656 individual letters, e-mails and web-comments received, more than 60 per cent related to Great Harwood.
The decision to close the tips in Great Harwood, Colne, Garstang and Bacup was to go ahead in March next year.
