Greensboro moves forward with landfill, CEEJ meets tonight to discuss next steps

The Greensboro City Council is pushing forward with a limited plan to reopen the White Street Landfill to municipal solid waste.
According to the Greensboro News and Record, the council voted 4-3 to seek new proposals that would only allow for the use of the presently existing phases. The current injunction against the city bars it from hiring a private firm to expand the landfill. T. Dianne Bellamy-Small, Robbie Perkins and Jim Kee voted against seeking new proposals. Two members were excused from the vote due to conflicts of interest.
Citizens for Economic and Environmental Justice will be holding a community meeting tonight to talk about the landfill at Presbyterian Church of the Cross, corner of Phillips Ave. and English Street (1810 Phillips Avenue, Greensboro, NC 27405-5236). SCSJ’s Chris Brook will be there to discuss the case thus far.
