Speak Up!

The Texas Commission on Environmental Quality (“TCEQ”) has the power to deny Green Group Holdings, LLC (“GGH”) their permit to build a landfill.

Here’s what you need to do!

FIRST.  Write a letter to the TCEQ. 

You may want to express:

  • Your opposition to any waste facilities in Caldwell County,
  • Your concern about the threat this landfill poses to our sources of water (i.e., aquifers, surface water and local wells, etc.),
  • Your concern regarding the noise, smell, litter, vermin, garbage trucks increasing the danger on and tearing up our roadways, and
  • That there are enough landfills in Central Texas already so this landfill is not even necessary.

NEXT.   Write a letter to our Caldwell County Commissioners.

You may want to express:

  • That to enter into the Host Agreement with Green Group, would tie the hands of Caldwell County and render us powerless to stop the landfill.
  • That to enter into the Host Agreement with Green Group would prevent us from having a voice in the contested case hearing!  And at a critical time when our attorneys are obtaining sworn testimony from Green Group representatives!
  • Your opposition to any waste facilities in Caldwell County (and thank them for passing a siting ordinance that will prevent future landfills in our county).
  • That although GGH has threatened to sue the county and told the Commissioners there is nothing they can do to stop this dump, encourage the Commissioners to stay the course.
  • This landfill is not necessary!  Central Texas already has enough landfills!
