ENVIR, Hillside dump to close & be converted to green space [H, BW]

Proviso Insider:
According to sources close to the situation, waste disposal at the landfill will end for good in late spring of 2008, and the landfill will be converted to green space by the end of 2008. Sources say a community meeting to detail the plans for closing the landfill is set for Thursday, April 12, 2007 at 7pm at St. Domitilla School, South Hall, 605 Hillside Avenue, Hillside, Illinois.

While Proviso Insider lacks credibility on political issues and stories about local people, I hope s/he's got this one right.

The Hillside dump has under the worse circumstances been the source of noxious odors in Bellwood for many years.

  • That would be "worst".

  • Oh poor Bellwood, when Hillside spent tons of money fighting the opening of the dump back in late 70's early 80's Bellwood did nothing to help, not one cent. I don't beleive Westchster did either. Hillside went broke fighting them. So as far as I am concerned they have not a thing to say about the smell, truck traffic anything. They left Hillside high and dry to fight the big corperation by itself.
    Yes the dump is set to close early next year and turned into open green space. I saw the notice from the village.
