I’ve been in contact with the Simi Valley Landfill and I’m pleased to say that I have a tour scheduled for November 24th. I’m excited and that’s no joke. Unlike most people, I like landfills. The reason is because I produce trash and I’m pleased that as a producer of trash there’s a place for me to put it when my trash cans are full. Plus, I’m well aware of the benefits of a landfill. There are some… I swear.
However, quite a few around town are pretty discouraged by the idea of a landfill expansion which has been proposed by Waste Management. I’m hoping this tour gives me a clear sense of what it’s all about, what the environmental impact might be, and how it will benefit our city and surrounding neighbors.
Again, if you have any thoughts or comments about the landfill expansion project, I’d be delighted to hear about them before my tour on the 24th. Feel free to email me or leave me a comment here.
