Waste Management Presents Check to Will County
More than half a million after collaboration
"We've been working with Waste Management to find the best solution for the Laraway landfill for a while," said Democratic minority leader Herb Brooks (D-Joliet). "It's nice to have the expansion officially approved, and to receive this generous check. I want to give a big thanks to Waste Management for their continued support to District 8."
Waste Management began working with Will County in 2007 on a host agreement to take over the environmental remediation of the phosphogypsum stack at the site of the defunct Olin Chemical plant, in exchange for an expansion of the Laraway landfill.
