We have only 30 More Weeks to Dump the Dump!

Read our January Newsletter.

We are working closely with our sister organization (Dump this Dump 2) in Carlsbad Springs/Ottawa and are planning a public meeting in the next few weeks to tell you how you can help us out.

This is the last sprint to the finish line (the MOE's decision by July 30, 2015) - we must not give up!

There is a technical team going through the documents to comment on the many, many deficiencies and and misleading statements. I can assure you we are doing our very best!

At this time, we need all the public and political support we can get, to defeat this project.

Please stand with us to oppose this dump on Boundary Road!

Watch for our booth at the Living Locally Fair on Saturday Jan 17 at St. Thomas Aquinas High School in Russell.

Il ne nous reste que 30 semaines pour arrêter le projet du dépotoir!‏

Environmental Assessment Report

On June 10, Taggart Miller posted and distributed to interested parties their draft Environmental Assessment Report for the proposed CRRRC project. The announcement to the concerned citizens has been posted in ads in local papers and is shown below. Community members can download these reports at the website www.crrrc.ca and have until July 31, 2014 to submit comments.

We need your support! We are not against the recycling components of this project, but do not want a landfill to be placed at either of the proposed sites. Another landfill in Eastern Ontario y will only drive down the dumping fees and discourage recycling (it is easier and cheaper to dump waste in a landfill)
