CENTRAL LANDFILL MANAGEMENT ACTION COMMITTEE SCHEDULES MEETING ON FEBRUARY 22
PROVIDENCE - The next meeting of the Central Landfill Management Action Committee will take place on Tuesday, February 22 from 6:30-8:30 p.m. at the Ferri Middle School (Room 220) in Johnston. The meeting is open to the public.
This ad hoc committee was formed last month to advise state, federal, and local authorities on appropriate actions to be taken concerning issues such as odor and erosion problems that have been occurring at the Central Landfill. The committee serves as a vehicle for providing outreach and dialogue with the community on a regular, ongoing basis.
The committee consists of representatives from the community surrounding the landfill, DEM, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), the state Department of Health, Rhode Island Resource Recovery Corporation, as well as local elected officials from Johnston, Cranston and Scituate.
Tuesday's agenda will feature a brainstorming session on potential solutions to the Central Landfill's gas collection and gas control systems and the use of various cover materials at the facility, and a discussion of meeting ground rules and conduct.
