PUBLIC INVITED TO CENTRAL LANDFILL ACTION COMMITTEE MEETING IN JOHNSTON ON OCTOBER 24

PROVIDENCE - The next meeting of the Central Landfill Action Committee will take place on Tuesday, October 24 from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m. at the Ferri Middle School library at 10 Memorial Avenue, off Atwood Avenue in Johnston. The meeting is open to the public. A status report on implementing recommendations published by the committee in July will be presented, and other issues of concern related to the Central Landfill will be discussed.

The 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 at the Central Landfill. The committee serves as a vehicle for providing outreach and dialogue with the community on a regular, ongoing basis. Committee members include representatives from the community surrounding the landfill, the Department of Environmental Management, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), the state Department of Health, the Rhode Island Resource Recovery Corporation, and local elected officials from Johnston, Cranston and Scituate.
