A group of concerned citizens is taking steps toward protecting the property around the old Richmond Landfill.
The Concerned Citizens Committee of Tyendinaga and Environs was on March 30 granted permission to appeal a ruling by the province’s Environmental Review Tribunal and the group has now taken action by submitting to the tribunal their notice to appeal.
A group spokesperson told the Belleville Intelligencer that filing the appeal is the next major step in achieving the group’s goal of having stricter guidelines imposed at the dump site for the protection of the local soil and groundwater.
