Stop the egregious 50 year expansion of the Keystone Sanitary Landfill

This petition had 769 supporters

The Keystone Landfill has be in operation for 30 years. It has accepted millions of tons of garbage 68% of which is from outside of Pennsylvania. Recently the DEP approved its request to accept Fracking drill cuttings and fracking waste water. These products contain hundreds of unknown chemicals some of which have Radon in them. This landfill sits in the middle of several thriving communities. There are homes and business in close proximity. There are childcare facilities/daycare facilities, grocery stores and a YMCA that are very close. This landfill has been leaking leachate ( garbage juice) into our groundwater for 12 years and the DEP has done nothing. Our air, our water  and our health are in jeopardy. Now the Landfill wants 50 more years and a 220 vertical expansion. This will make Keystone Landfill higher than the Statue of Liberty. Its going to be so high it will require a red light at its highest point so the planes heading to Avoca Airport will see it. Please sign this petition and tell the Governor of Pennsylvania that a landfill of this size that accepts dangerous Fracking materials belongs in a remote location. Help the children and future children of our area grow up in a safe healthy environment. Thank You!
