Dunn Landfill Opponents Push DEC On Permit Renewal

Over the last 7 years, residents of Rensselaer have been fighting for the closure of the Dunn Landfill due to its negative impacts; including noise, diesel exhaust, hydrogen sulfide odors, truck traffic, and proximity to a local school. Rensselaer Environmental Coalition held a news conference to discuss the many problems it has cited in the original review of the permit by DEC. Dave Ellis of Rensselaer Environmental Coalition discusses what the group hopes the Governor and DEC will do in the pending renewal process. With Mark Dunlea for Hudson Mohawk Magazine.
