[greenyes] Independent Community Monitors for landfills?


Apologies for Cross-Postings

Do you know of any other examples of independent Community Monitors to oversee the development or expansion of landfills in your area or elsewhere?

Pursuant to a legal settlement governing the expansion of the Altamont Landfill and Resource Recovery Facility (ALRRF) in Alameda County, California, the City of Livermore, the City of Pleasanton, the Sierra Club,
the Northern California Recycling Association (NCRA), and Altamont Landowners Against Rural Mismanagement (ALARM) won the right to have such an independent Community Monitor, funded by the project owner, Waste Management of Alameda County, Inc.

A Community Monitor Committee has been setup that is hiring a consultant to represent the interests of the community in seeing that regulations are properly applied so as to minimize the impacts of the ALRRF on the surrounding community.
