Allied Paper Landfill


So far, residents say they’re not sold on the Environmental Protection Agency’s plan for the Allied Paper Landfill. Last night, the EPA held the first of two round table discussions on the proposal.


The Executive Director of the Kalamazoo River Cleanup Coalition says public input is an important part of the process in cleaning up a federal Superfund site. 


Kalamazoo River Cleanup Coalition Executive Director Gary Wager says the Environmental Protection Agency's proposal to clean up the former Allied Paper Landfill is "essentially the same" as a plan put forward by the city last year. 

"KALAMAZOO, MI -- The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency has officially released its proposal to clean up the Allied Paper Superfund site in Kalamazoo, and it looks a lot like the compromise plan developed with city officials last winter. A 60-day period will begin Sept. 30 to collect public comment on the plan, the EPA announcement said." (Kalamazoo Gazette)
