The deadline to voice opposition to a third smelly garbage dump in south Madison County is Tuesday and everyone should voice opposition on the grounds we’re not the dumping ground of the South.

Anyone can go to stopthencllandfill.com and drop a note to Gov. Bryant and MDEQ, for what it’s worth.

Sadly, we smell rotten politics worse than the garbage stench already wafting toward the Governor’s Mansion.

The Madison County Board of Supervisors has been spineless and voters will remember who is complicit in what amounts a rich brother-in-law deal. 

Meanwhile, honest local community members, elected officials and organizations are joining together again today (Thursday) to voice their opposition to the proposed landfill west of Ridgeland.

Amazingly, the list of thsoe leading the gathering is quite bipartisan: 



• Jackson Mayor Chokwe Antar Lumumba

• Ridgeland Mayor Gene McGee

• Sylvia Thomas, President of the North Livingston Homeowner Association

• D.I. Smith, Ridgeland Alderman at-large

• Ron Farris, Attorney for No More Dumps

They will rally to voice opposition to “a big garbage company’s plan to site another landfill in Madison County.”

Madison County already has two landfills, including one recently expanded, yet the Mississippi Department of Environmental Quality (MDEQ) permit board is set to meet on Dec. 10 and approve the proposal to build the third waste dump in Madison County. 

A third dump is bad for the neighborhood, bad for Madison County and bad for Jackson. This needs to be stopped.

This dump is about corporate interests and greasy politics. Stop this dump!
