Today’s article in the Times Tribune highlights Friends of Lackawanna. We requested no photos for the article since Friends of Lackawanna is about a large group of concerned citizens opposing the landfill expansion. They took the photos in the paper from their archives and the wrong person is pictured as Katherine Mackrell Oven, who is quoted in the article.
Concerned about the environment and public health, a growing number of area residents are organizing to fight Keystone Sanitary Landfill’s proposed expansion in Dunmore and Throop.
The group formed an organization called Friends of Lackawanna. It has around a dozen core members, nearly 850 Facebook followers and has packed Dunmore Community Center with concerned citizens at recent borough council meetings.
