We call on all allies and Delaware County residents to show up with signs and noise makers to demand that DCSWA not give away its landfill space for Covanta’s ash, and not extend a new Covanta contract
If you heard a lot about the trouble with Covanta but don’t really know what it’s about, then join us tomorrow night for an informational meeting.

We are so excited to share that one of our own ,Will Jones has been appointed to the Delaware County Solid Waste Authority Board! This is huge! To put it in plain terms this is the board that decides what happens to Delaware County's trash.
Chester, Pennsylvania has long been known as one of the nation’s worst cases of environmental racism. This small city just southwest of Philadelphia hosts the nation’s largest trash incinerator, a sewage sludge incinerator, a paper mill burning waste coal and petroleum coke, numerous chemical plants, toxic waste sites, and much more. Immediately surrounding it in the neighboring waterfront boroughs of Eddystone, Trainer, and Marcus Hook are additional major polluters: primarily oil refineries and gas-fired power plants
