Boycott AREA Disposal: Alternative Garbage Haulers

PDC/AREA Disposal owns the Clinton Landfill, which sits directly above the Mahomet Aquifer – the sole source for drinking water for over 750,000 of us in Central Illinois. AREA Disposal’s Clinton Landfill has created a new kind of dump in order to receive highly toxic, carcinogenic chemical wastes, including Manufactured Gas Plant (MGP) and polychlorinated biphenyl(PCB) wastes.

AREA Disposal has been dumping toxic MGP waste in the Clinton landfill since 2011. The Landfill’s proximity to the Aquifer puts the Aquifer under serious risk of contamination.

 

About the Boycott of AREA Disposal:

Boycott

The purpose of the boycott is to let AREA Disposal know that our communities do not approve of the Clinton Landfill chemical waste dump and the threat it poses to the Mahomet Aquifer. We will not contribute to a company that is so willing to threaten our environmental and public health in order to benefit its bottom line.

If AREA Disposal is your garbage hauler, please consider changing hauling companies. See below for more information on garbage haulers that are not owned by AREA Disposal and who do not haul their wastes to the Clinton Landfill, which is owned by AREA Disposal. Please note that AREA Disposal owns many smaller waste haulers, including Klean Way. If your hauler is not listed below, they may be owned by AREA Disposal. Please call them to find out if they are owned by AREA Disposal, and if they are, consider switching haulers. 

Alternative Haulers:

Below are residential garbage hauling companies, listed by city, that are not part of AREA Disposal and that do not haul waste to Clinton Landfill. The haulers listed are all approved by their respective cities, and you can find them on each municipal website. If there are no haulers listed, please contact your city or village directly to get a list of approved haulers. Then you can contact those haulers to find out if they are part of AREA Disposal or if they haul to Clinton Landfill.
