Sound off for Jan. 27, 2013
Last week, we asked whether Potrero Hills Landfill should be allowed to expand.
Here are some comments on our website:
- Where else are we to put all of the cheap junk we buy from China?
- A more appropriate question would be “should local politicians and judges stand trial for defying, abridging and violating Measure E that required the landfill not to accept other cities’ and counties’ garbage so as to extend the capacity duration of our limited space landfill?”
- Where else are you going to put the trash? Want to hold onto it at your house? There’s only so many places for a dump. It’s either continue to put garbage at the same place you already have garbage or create some new spot for it all. Of course costs will end up going up to pay for a new location also. No one wants a dump in their backyard, but it has to be someplace.
- If we expand it we should use it for Solano County only. The county should not be allowed to use it for income from other counties.
