Novato Advance: Environmentalists sue county over landfill by By Paul Jones.

More than a month after the California Integrated Waste Management Board approved the issuance of a permit for the expansion of the Redwood Landfill’s capacity, a coalition of environmental groups is suing Marin County.

The lawsuit claims:

• the county failed to adequately address the environmental impact of the future expansion in its environmental impact report, or EIR;

• the county violated its own countywide plan’s requirement for “zero waste;” and;

• the county refused to hear an appeal of the expansion before the county’s Local Enforcement Agency forwarded a draft of the expansion permit to the waste management board.

Remember this when Marin complains about NCRA not doing their EIR correctly, or fully.
