Belleville "dumping ground" source of community complaints

BELLEVILLE (WKZO) -- People who live near the Wayne Disposal landfill in Belleville say they are tired of being the country's dumping ground.

Reportedly the facility was due to accept 36-tons of radioactive sludge that at least two other states refused to accept. The waste, which came from a Pennsylvania hydraulic fracking operation, was due to be dumped at the disposal site on Friday although there is no confirmation yet whether it actually arrived.

Operators of Wayne Disposal say the level of radiation is safe although Sierra Club members believe that water in the area may be at risk.
