We hope the ECTV will help to educate our citizens on the impact of the potential Keystone Sanitary Landfill expansion by covering the next DEP public meeting. We are just at the beginning of understanding its current and future negative impacts.
John Quigley, acting state secretary of the Department of Environmental Protection, has issued some encouraging signals about the Wolf administration’s approach to the proposed massive expansion of the Keystone Sanitary Landfill.
Crucially, he said recently at a legislative hearing that the department will consider the capacity of the Alliance Sanitary Landfill in Taylor to accept regional waste that now goes to Keystone, when it considers the expansion application.
