2007 - Major victories over LANDFILLS - here and all over NC

(1) In early April, SIMS HUGO NEU corporation announced they were withdrawing their applications for permits to construct a Landfill in NAVASSA. This Landfill would potentially rise to over 350 feet and contain auto 'fluff' - both of which are terribly undesirable to the citizens of the Cape Fear area. (2) In early August, Governor Easley signed into Law the Waste Management Bill of 2007. This new law imposes much stonger requirements for adding mega Landfills in NC as well as establishes reasonable financial responsibility for those who operate them. This new Law immediately halted the construction of several new mega Landfills proposed to be built throughout NC. The leadership of NC's General Assembly is responsible for these victories. The NC legislators listened to and supported the environmental demands of the citizens of this state.
