STOP the new 23+ acre Construction of a NEW Class 3 Landfill in Harrison.
This petition had 2,156 supporters
This petition is in protest of building a new 23+ acre Class 3 Landfill in Harrison, TN. Harrison already has a large active garbage landfill and closed landfills. There are alternative sites in Bradley County (active) and at the VAAP (inactive).
This growing region is home to a diverse community centered around Harrison Bay State Park, Bear Trace golf course, and the Tennessee River. It is unconscionable that the city and county would consider building a Class 3 Dump in the middle of all of this. The health consequences for our children and community from more polluted ground water and surface water runoff would be immeasurable. Further, the adverse financial impact on the home values in this now desirable area, would greatly impede growth which would in turn, reduce tax revenue to the county.
Another Class 3 Dump does not belong in Harrison. Please act now and consider alternative sites in more industrial areas or alternative plans for transfer. Do not allow political posturing to destroy this neighborhood in a growing part of Hamilton County.
