Allied Paper Landfill

More than 100 people attended a public forum Tuesday night organized by the Kalamazoo River Cleanup Coalition. It opposes the EPA plan to keep PCB contamination at the site in place.

More than a hundred people showed their opposition the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency’s plan for the Allied Paper Landfill site at a Kalamazoo meeting last night.


City officials, environmentalists, and many residents aren’t happy about a federal proposal for Kalamazoo’s Allied Paper landfill. In March, officials from the Environmental Protection Agency briefed city commissioners on a proposal to leave highly toxic PCB contamination at the Superfund site. The city and the Kalamazoo River Cleanup Coalition want all of the material removed.

Commissioners and residents want site completely cleaned up. Cost estimates are far greater for that option
