Reaction to WM proposal unfavourable
Subject: WM says centre will offer new approach to manage waste article May 6 2010
I have attended two of the open houses and one of the workshops and I would take issue with the statement “Public reaction has generally been favourable so far …” Most of the people I talked to at the open houses were not happy with the answers they were getting regarding a new 6.5 million cubic meter landfill in the middle of their community. They felt there was a disconnect between the promised diversion rates and the needs for a large landfill.
At the workshop the materials present to the workgroup were lacking in detail and had some questionable facts that were identified by the participants. Extensive discussion and questions about the materials meant that there was no time to complete the workshop topics and the group broke up with out discussing criteria for evaluation alternatives.
Based on my experience at the open houses and the workshops as well as discussions with my neighbours, I would say that public reaction has been generally unfavourable.
