Westmoreland Sanitary Landfill Press Conference
Time & Location
About the Event
In October 2020 Protect PT sent over 7,000 Every Door Direct Mailed surveys to residents surrounding the Westmoreland County Landfill. The response to our survey has been overwhelming. The impacts residents reported go far beyond citations the landfill has so far received from the PA DEP. Residents reported sludge on the roadways discharging into streams and rivers and other nuisances. Additionally, several residents said they have changed daily routines to avoid further contamination. It is clear that residents have been deprived of their property rights and the enjoyments and use of their property. Due to the widespread nature of these concerns and complaints with PA DEP going unanswered, we have been invited by Gerald Jackson to hold a Virtual Press Conference on January 7th, 9:30 am on ZOOM.
