The MTS poses very real quality of life issues for people of all ages, including the most vulnerable: young, elderly and disabled people. It threatens the health and safety of residents in the community with increased risk of asthma and cancer near the facility and all along the truck and barge routes where garbage will be transported.
As professionals committed to improving the quality of life and health of our City, we strongly oppose this dump.
