Greensboro residents argue against re-opening White Street Landfill with letter

The Southern Coalition for Social Justice, working with the Greensboro Citizens for Economic and Environmental Justice, today submitted a letter to the Greensboro City Manager and City Council opposing plans to re-open and potentially expand the White Street Landfill. The letter demonstrates re-opening this landfill would disproportionately burden African-American Greensboro residents with the negative environmental and public health impact associated with municipal solid wastes landfills. Re-opening the landfill would also stifle future economic growth in the surrounding community and subject Greensboro to potential legal action.
