NOTE: *** Video attached to this letter is to illustrate that I have been talking about the dump as far as 2016. ***

Dear Editor,

Gromyko Wilson anaspiring politicalcandidate for theupcoming (2023) elections

Or should one ask: why is a proper waste management solution essential?

By living in close proximity to the landfill, these individuals/ families are prone to diseases, methane gases, soil and air pollution, and general health risks that come along with years of exposure Read more
