Scholl Canyon Landfill to be Discussed at Tonight's City Council Meeting

The City of Glendale has proposed an "experimental" Anaerobic Digestion Facility (AD facility, AKA "Biogas Renewable Generation Project") and a Power Generator to be located at the Scholl Canyon Landfill. An alternative waste management facility (AD or otherswise) is a great idea, but NOT in a residential area--not at Glendale's Dump. 
What we ask of the City of Glendale:
1. Find a non-residential area for the Anaerobic Digestion Facility--don't locate it at Scholl Canyon Landfill.
2.  To CLOSE the dump by June 2028--revise terms of the Joint Powers Agreement that's coming up for renewal in October 2017 to include this final closure date.
Working with CFLA and the residents of Glendale, Eagle Rock, and Pasadena we are trying to get a large group of people down to the Glendale City Council Meeting tonight (August 29th), to voice our concerns about the proposed projects up at Scholl Canyon Landfill.
The City NEEDS to hear from us, they MUST see a large crowd of concerned residents present at their chambers if we want to make a difference.  Please join us and bring a friend along. All you have to do is be present--that's it.  Several CFLA members will be speaking during Oral Communications.

Wear a blue top, if you have one--any shade of blue is fine.
