The Concerned Citizens Committee of Tyendinaga have won a tribunal decision against Waste Management and the Environment Ministry.
The group last week won the right to appeal seven conditions set out by the government on the closed landfill near Napanee.
Richard Lindgren is representing the Concerned Citizens and says the group wants to see the most stringent safety conditions possible.
Waste Management says according to the government, their landfill is the most highly monitored capped site in Ontario.
The Citizens and Ministry will be part of public hearings, which are yet to be scheduled.
