Save Harnett County! Stop the landfill from destroying our community!

    1. Petition by

      Brynn Vollmer

      Cameron, NC

Tell our County Commissioners, State and Federal Representatives, and our Governor that we do not want a landfill in our community. North Carolina already has over forty operational solid waste facilities in the state with decades of use left! This landfill would threaten the peaceful way of life for Harnett County residents as well as the health and safety of our families.

The sand pit located on Claude White Road is nearing depletion and the owners of the property are looking for an alternative money making venture. Without considering any other options they submitted an application to the Harnett County Board of Adjustment for a permit to operate a Municipal Solid Waste Facility on the land. The Board of Adjustment and the County Commissioners are set to review this application in mid-September. We need your help to make sure our voices are heard!

Unfortunately, Sandhills Environmental LLC has been secretly lobbying behind closed doors with local government officials to allow them to make our community a solid waste disposal. The goal of this, of course, is to make millions of dollars for the owners of the landfill, with scarcely a concern for its impact on the environment and public health.

Sign the petition today and save our community!

      Do not want this waste in our back yards, contanminating our soil and water, nor do we need the extra traffice on our highways that WE pay the taxes on for up keep. The western section of Harnett county has just begun to grow and we want to keep it safe and growing to bring in jobs for our local residents! WE SAY NO TO THE DUMP SITE! We are encouraging our elected leaders to stand up for and with US!

      "Sandhills Environmental LLC has been secretly lobbying behind closed doors with local government officials to allow them to make our community a solid waste disposal. The goal of this, of course, is to make millions of dollars for the owners of the landfill." I have a feeling that if these people will hide behind our backs to conger up a deal like this they will have absolutly no concerns of our well being or property value. I just hope the names of the public officials are public record.

      We don't need toxic trash leaking into our soil and water. Some of us are still using water wells and not on county water. Health concerns, decrease in property value and qualify of life will be impacted. Don't we already have enough land-fills in Harnett County?

      We are concerned that this is going to to ruin our property value among the smell. We moved to the country for peace and fresh air, not this!
