Fear vs. Fact
To the Editor:
Fear vs. Fact—Getting the Facts Straight about Cassella and Dalton—Just What Are the Facts?
I write concerning the misleading “Get the Facts” pamphlet that Casella Waste Management Systems has been circulating among the residents of Dalton. I am appalled by its half-truths, misrepresentation, disinformation, blatant falsehoods and fearmongering on the subject of zoning in Dalton.
Casella is a waste management company—a big one—that collects and buries waste, garbage, demolition and construction material. It also does some recycling and some conversion of waste to energy. As its web site reports, the stuff it buries in landfills is not just household garbage, but includes asbestos, PCBs, contaminated soils, sludges, ash and drill cuttings.
