Program Topic: Juniper Ridge Landfill “Making Contact” Piece and Interviews

Today we hear a report from Meaghan LaSala and Lisa Bartfai on the proposed expansion of the Juniper Ridge Landfill in Old Town. Juniper Ridge is state owned, but privately operated by Casella Waste Management. The State’s Board of Environmental Protection (BEP) is expected to release a Draft Decision on the proposed expansion this month, after which the public will have time to submit comments. There is no public meeting scheduled by the BEP on this Draft Decision.
