Waste Management quietly files application for expanded operations to add liquid waste processing/disposal to Plainfield Township/Pen Argyl Grand Central landfill

On March 29, 2016 Waste Management quietly submitted an application to expand its Plainfield Township landfill's operations to include the disposal of virtually any liquid waste.  Currently WM can only dispose of solid waste and sludge.  This plan (described in the document below) involves mixing the liquid waste with a solidification agent in a huge vat on the landfill site prior to disposal. 

A DEP spokesperson said that there have been a few meetings to discuss this application, and the DEP has not taken official action but has serious reservations of Synagro's plan to conduct these operations at this site.

Bend over and grab yer ankles, Slate Belt residents.  Waste Management is on a never ending quest to truck in the most profitable and objectionable waste that it can, and dispose of it in your backyard.

  1. This is typical of a corporation backed only by greed. The residents of the slate belt have been opposed to trucking any sludge. There is an ongoing petition to stop this. The back office deals to avoid the public is just totally wrong. Please stop the poisoning of the locals
