Environmental Protection in the Interest of Caldwell County (“EPICC”) is a grassroots movement of local residents who joined together in October 2013 to take action against the proposed landfill (aka SH130 Environmental Park) to be located at Hwy. 183 and FM1185 just north of Lockhart, Texas.
Our primary goal is to uncover the facts about this landfill… facts Green Group Holdings, LLC (“GGH”) will not be forthcoming with. We then get that information out to the community however possible because we are confident that when Caldwell County residents have all the facts about how this landfill will devastate our community, they will join us in our effort to put a stop to it.
Perhaps GGH thought we were just simple folk who would believe their rhetoric about how much better our lives would be because of the 130 Environmental Park. Well, we may be simple folks, but we sure as heck know “dump” is not spelled “p-a-r-k!”
Consider your family’s health, your property values, and the costly and dangerous results of having large garbage trucks driving on our roads bringing in waste from outside our county… and then join us.
This landfill is NOT a done deal! Contrary to what GGH would like us to believe, this landfill can be defeated, but it will take time, money and people who are willing to help!
We hope you’ll join us!
Please read what a Uniontown, Alabama resident had to say about how devastated her life became when Arrowhead Landfill came under the management of Green Group Holdings, LLC in her community. Arrowhead Landfill is the only landfill that is both owned and operated by Green Group Holdings, LLC.
This is what Caldwell County residents can expect if 130 Environmental Park is approved —
“First we were told it was just going to be a solid waste landfill just for household garbage. It grew from that into a landfill that would take in demolition waste and structure waste – it just went to a full-blown municipal solid waste landfill. We started out with just a few cities, just a few states that were supposed to come here… now I think we have over 30.
We’ve had very serious problems with this landfill. Let me tell you about the roads. I live on a county road, County Road 1. The road was in very bad condition. So with the 5 cents the county decided they were going to pay for the road. We were happy. But guess what? The large trucks that came in? They tore that road up within nine months!
You’re going to have problems with your infrastructure, meaning your roads. You’re going to have trash and debris flying everywhere.
This summer we had a terrible problem with vultures, ….. we’re talking hundreds of vultures just perching on this mountain.
Hopefully your commissioners will listen to you. Our commissioners did not listen to us and now we have a city that cannot draw industry. Draw your own conclusions and do the right thing.”
~ Cynthia Maddox of Uniontown, Alabama, where residents lost a legal battle to block construction of a 1,000 acre municipal landfill. Local politicians welcomed the business and negotiated a $1.05 per ton fee on the waste – which included coal ash – all 4 million tons of it.
