Environmentalists And Town of Saugus Appeal State Approval Of Ash Landfill

Craig LeMoult, WGBH

The Massachusetts-based Conservation Law Foundation is appealing the state Department of Environmental Protection’s April decision to allow a controversial ash landfill in Saugus to continue operations. The appeal follows a similar one filed last week by the Saugus Board of Health.

The landfill is owned and operated by Wheelabrator, which uses it to store ash from a garbage incinerator on the site that burns 1,500 tons of garbage per day from 10 Massachusetts communities and turns it into electricity.
