Opposition to Landfill Expansion Proposal

A landfill company has applied for an expansion that will extend its life by approximately 14 years and is within 13 feet of the flight path. 

It is unacceptable to expand any landfill within east Travis county. There should have been a moratorium on all landfills, wastewater facilities, refineries, metal recycling pits, and gravel pits years ago. Using the areas in east Travis county as a dumping ground knowing that these are low income majority racially diverse with a majority Latino and Black population is part of the historically racist system that exist. The environmental ecosystem of east Travis county has never been a priority to the representatives in power for this area. This is an opportunity to lead and help to end systemic racism in our area.

Depending on how the contested case plays out there may be opportunities for phone and textbanking in the coming weeks or months. Sign up if you are interested in helping.
