We, the residents of Lower Windsor township, York, PA, oppose the proposed expansion of Republic Services' Modern Landfill for many reasons.

The landfill will destroy over 150 acres of the best agricultural land in PA. Most of the land owned by Republic Services is currently zoned agricultural, & we are against the rezoning of this land because it goes against the township's comprehensive plan.

We believe the landfill's 'expansion' would best be labeled a 'new' landfill because the landfill will start a new footprint across a state road.

The landfill is not safe; it is an active Superfund site. The air smells bad. The trucks are noisy. We are concerned about the safety of our drinking water and the effect on local streams and wildlife habitats, such as the bog turtle.

Many residents' lives will be directly and negatively impacted by the new landfill location because it will be directly 'in their back yard'. The waste haulers, the noise, the smell, & pollution will become unavoidable. Hundreds of sea gulls will invade their homes. 

The 'new' landfill must be stopped because it will have a massive negative impact upon the people of LWT, and upon the environment as well.
