    Topic: LD 879 “An Act To Ensure Adequate Landfill Capacity in the State for Solid Waste” — allowing the expansion of the Norridgewock dump. The legislation would undo protections put in place after that dump collapsed in a landslide in the late 80s.

    The Natural Resources Committee of the Maine State Legislature is holding public hearings this afternoon on several pieces of legislation related to waste disposal in Maine, including LD 879, “An Act To Ensure Adequate Landfill Capacity in the State for Solid Waste” — which activists have called “the bill that just won’t die”. Here to explain why, is Hillary Lister, an environmental activist from central Maine who has spent years researching and working on waste disposal issues in Maine.
