5/1/2015: Congressman Cartwright Opposes Landfill Expansion Plan

We are thrilled that Congressman Cartwright has expressed opposition to the Keystone Sanitary Landfill expansion, though we believe that Keystone Sanitary Landfill's environmental concerns are not "vague", but rather, very concrete. In this article, he encourages Friends of Lackawanna and KSL to negotiate a solution. To date, KSL has not offered any alternatives that we are aware of other than the proposal that DEP is considering. As we state in the letter:

“Friends of Lackawanna has made its position regarding the expansion of the Keystone Sanitary Landfill clear — we are firmly against it,” said Michele Dempsey, one of the organization’s leaders. “We believe that with the amount of harms and concerns that already exist, it cannot be allowed to expand."
