“My neighbors have died”: Toa Alta residents demand expedited closure of the landfill

Toa Alta – Although closer, the date of the absolute closure of the Toa Alta landfill is still uncertain, they recognized the Federal Environmental Protection Agency (EPA, in English) and the Department of Natural and Environmental Resources (DRNA), during a public meeting in which the communities were presented with the agreements regarding the second stipulation and final order towards the expected closure, as part of a federal lawsuit against the Municipality.

The situation, however, is unsustainable and is going against the clock for the residents surrounding the dump. “Let them close that gate and let no one enter.”he demanded Elaine Cruz Medina69 years old and resident of the Quebrada Arenas neighborhood, in statements to The new day.

“Who is responsible? Nobody here? This is like continuing to fight without justice. It is, for me, very hard to say that they are doing anything. “We have to do something quickly.”, He proposed, for his part, Ivette Elice Cintron, 59, in his turn to comment before EPA and DRNA officials. About 40 residents participated in the public meeting, held on Tuesday at the Lauro Davila Felix Coliseum.
