    Juniper Ridge Landfill Expansion Approved by BEP; Trump Withdraws from Paris Climate Agreement

    -Today the Maine Board of Environmental Protection approved the expansion of the Juniper Ridge Landfill in Old Town.
    -Local activists have strongly opposed the expansion, underlining the amount of out of state waste that is reclassified as “in-state waste” and disposed at Juniper Ridge, which is state owned, but privately operated by Casella Waste Management. Opponents, including members of the Penobscot Nation, are alarmed by potential impacts on ground water and the continued dumping of leachate by product into the Penobscot River.
    -We also examine Trump’s withdrawal from the Paris Climate Accord

    Guests:
    Ed Spencer, Old Town resident and intervenor in Juniper Ridge Landfill Expansion
    Erika Lennon, senior attorney for the Center for International Environmental Law

    This program was produced in partnership with the Sunlight Media Collective.
