If you are interested in making your voice heard regarding the new landfill in Salem Township, attend the July 13 Washtenaw County Solid Waste Planning Committee meeting.
Meeting location is at the Washtenaw County Western Service Center, 705 N. Zeeb Road, Ann Arbor, MI 48107 in the Michigan State Extension Classroom (basement room). View the agenda.
This committee has the authority to include the new Arbor Hills Landfill in the Washtenaw County solid waste management plan. We need to convince them not to include the expansion in their plan. Sign our petition to stop the new landfill.
The Washtenaw County Solid Waste Planning Committee was formed to update the county’s solid waste plan specifically in response to Advanced Disposal’s request to expand Arbor Hills Landfill. Arbor Hills has received many violations from the Department of Environmental Quality for polluting air and water. Review the Republic Services response to the latest violation that includes photos of Arbor Hills Landfill leaking leachate into ground water, landfill fires and other shocking information.
