So much has happened, so much has changed, and so much is unknown about the ReVenture gasification incinerator and its impact on our health, safety and environment it’s hard to know where to begin. For those that are joining us in this campaign to stop the ReVenture gasification incinerator and their dumping of their garbage and toxic waste from six counties, here are some key documents, fact sheets, presentations and materials to help you better understand the issues and concerns.
Take some time and read several of these. Then send a copy to your friends and neighbors. Then call and email your elected officials and tell them “No ReVenture Gasification Incinerator and No ReVenture Garbage and Toxic Waste”.
