Letter to the Editor: Say no to the landfill 

To the Editor: 

A June 15 Bangor Daily News update on the Hampden waste plant closure points out that, under state law, land filling is considered the worst possible way to dispose of waste.  

Yet the public continues to tolerate the Municipal Review Committee, representing some 115 cities and towns, hiding behind the screen that “legal obligations under the current contract” prevent them from negotiating with PERC for a logical and common-sense resolution of their dilemma. 

Since the Maine Department of Environmental Protection appears unable to enforce state policyit’s now time for concerned citizens to speak up and demand action from their municipal leaderships.
