View from home in Olyphant, PA

A view of the Keystone Sanitary Landfill from a home in Olyphant TODAY! So many people in our area bought their homes when the landfill wasn't an eyesore and/or when they believed it would close at the end of their existing permit. This is why Senator Casey raised the question about how much garbage one area or one community should reasonably have to accept before it seriously degrades our quality of life and poses so many potential risks to our health, safety and welfare.


A view of Keystone Sanitary Landfill from Dickson City today and what it could look like if the permit is accepted and it reaches capacity. It is gut-wrenching to see our views degraded today and sickening to see what could be. Please keep writing to our elected officials and the DEP to tell them we oppose this atrocity. Your voices are making a difference. Don't dump our future! P.S. Any community in Pennsylvania with a landfill, this could be you. By DEP regulations, there is no end to how large a landfill can get as long as it is "technically sound" and the airspace and/or land is available. Check your zoning codes today and watch who you vote into council and onto your zoning boards as the existing landfill permit begins to expire.
