    Producer/Host: Meredith DeFrancesco

    Program Topic: Casella Waste Systems’ proposed expansion of Juniper Ridge landfill in Old Town, and opposition to it by Occupy Augusta and general public

    Key Discussion Points:
    Casella’s claim that the waste is not from “out of state”
    Public’s environmental and health concerns
    Occupy Augusta’s recognition of this case as an a example of corporate sway over politics, and how profit seeking corporations attempt to disguise the negative aspects of their proposed projects.

    Hillary Lister, waste activist

    **NOTE: A 2nd audio file featuring a presentation about the University of Maine’s relationship with the Juniper Ridge Dump is included. Audio was recorded by John Greenman. Presentation was part of the University of Maine’s Marxist and Socialist Lecture Series
