Tuesday's Meeting is an Addition to the Committee's Bi-Weekly Meeting Schedule

PROVIDENCE - The Central Landfill Management Action Committee will hold its next meeting on Tuesday, June 20, 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 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 continuation of the discussion that took place at the June 13 meeting concerning the use of various cover materials at the Central Landfill.
