WE SAY NO! MDEGLE gave it's stamp of approval to expand US ECOLOGY NORTH a hazardous waste treatment plant in Detroit on January 20, 2020, after four years of robust community protest.
YES WE DID: The City of Detroit adopted the terms that the plant must agree to -
the Host Community Agreement (HCA). "No Fracking Waste"
Rerouting of trucks away from the neighborhoods nearby
Quarterly meetings with the community
The Host Community Agreement has a section that the plant can expand or change the kind of waste it takes in with a simple written note 30 days in advance. This will undermine the fight that the community has been waging for so many years. We must remain vigilant:
WE HAVE RENAMED AND
REFOCUSED OUR COALITION:
