Allied Paper Landfill


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)
