  1. DEP Newsroom Print COMMONWEALTH OF PENNSYLVANIA Dept. of Environmental Protection Commonwealth News Bureau Room 308, Main Capitol Building Harrisburg PA., 17120 FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE 12/1/2017 CONTACT: Melanie Williams, DEP 814-332-6615 DEP Issues $600,000 Penalty to Advanced Disposal Services Greentree Landfill, LLC for Waste Slope Failure and Other Violations
  2. The article talking about silica, alumina and iron oxide... Note it then moves on to the advantages versus disadvantages. It most certainly is advantageous to the producers of fly ash, just like using sewage sludge on fields is advantageous for some...
  3. Yes, it's a means for companies to get rid of their coal by-product, but is it beneficial to consumers if it doesn't last as long as cement?
  4. I didn't post a comment about fly ash being used in building material to speak of radioactivity. I posted it to ponder if fly ash used as a substitute for cement makes concrete less durable.
  5. No, I wasn't the person who brought up prions. There were 2 other people talking about it before I made a comment.
  6. Well, you brought up what sets off the Geiger counter. I also remember people discussing folded prions in the old landfill thread.
  7. I wasn't speaking of putting fly ash in a landfill. I was speaking of using it in construction products.
  8. Radioactive contaminants found in coal ash https://phys.org/news/2015-09-radioactive-contaminants-coal-ash.html
  9. It seems many things that are expensive to dispose of as waste suddenly find new homes. But how much testing is done before hand to determine the long term implications? I challenge that the new homes usually comes from well funded lobbying.
  10. Has it only become useful because the producers of fly ash now don't have to worry about what to do with it?
  11. Yes, but that was garbage collection. I have no idea how it would work with a landfill, but landfillguy says they would bring in other operators. I have no reason to doubt that.
  12. He's saying you can't shut a landfill down for any length of time because it could turn into a public health disaster. They don't have a union, so forming one now wouldn't help the workers with what happened in February.
  13. Looks like we have another wildfire in Sapphire.

      Ya think? LOL.... If that's what you call a wildfire at the fire ring, then, here, hold my wine!! :duh:

  14. You are right. There needs to be noise from the employees. https://www.nlrb.gov/rights-we-protect/employee-rights
