Public Hearing Proposed Landfill Expansion in the Pine Bush

Public Hearing Proposed Landfill Expansion in the Pine Bush

Polish Community Center

Everyone who is concerned about the
Pine Bush Must Attend!!!

ALBANY: The New York State Department of Environmental Conservation will hold one public hearing about the proposed landfill expansion on December 3.

This is the only hearing that will be held on the proposed expansion. This is your only chance to tell the City and the DEC what you think of destroying 20 acres of Pine Bush for more trash.

Supporters of the Pine Bush must ask, when will it end? The City is proposing to spend $41 million in capital expenses over the next five years on the landfill. This expansion, if built, would be the forth expansion in twenty years. Burying our trash at such a great cost is not the best way to handle our garbage.

Please take a moment to review the documents at or by viewing the documents at the Albany Public Library or the Town of Colonie Library. Written comments will be accepted until December 15 by writing to: Angelo A Marcuccio, NYSDEC Region 4 Headquarters, 1130 North Westcott Rd, Schenectady, NY 12306. Mr. Marcucio’s phone is (518)357-2069

Editor’s note: There is something wrong with this picture: people in poverty pick trash in Guatemala, while the City of Albany is going to spent $41 million to construct a landfill in the Pine Bush.
