Dunn Landfill Opponents Speak Out Before DEC Hearing (Part 2)

The Rensselaer Environmental Coalition and Capital Region Mothers Out Front organized a press conference on Tuesday August 8 in conjunction with two hearings by the state DEC on the pending permit renewal of the controversial Dunn Construction and Demolition Landfill in the City of Rensselaer. The press conference and hearings were held at the public school adjacent to the landfill. In part two of our coverage, we hear first Bob Welton of the Rensselaer Environmental Coalition, followed by Assemblymember John McDonald, and former EPA Regional Administrator Judith Enck.
