about us no dump conecuh county
At the end of December 2006 the word went out that a landfill had been proposed for our area. One week later over 300 people gathered in protest. Lenox Community Center could not hold us all. We spilled out onto the porch and into the yard, but no one left. What a mix we were, what passion we shared. And there was anger. And fear. Our rural community is just the kind of place for which 'they' search, the kind of place with a scattering of homes and no united voice. 'They' claim to be pure of intention, that property values will go up, that life will improve. We beg to differ. We want our homes and environment to remain unpolluted, we want our children's children to want to return to this area. Our extensive probing tell us that our initial misgivings have foundation, that our 'gut feelings' are accurate. Hazardous materials are not filtered out, smells cannot be contained, landfill liners are not guaranteed. And that is worrisome as there are five aquifers beneath the proposed landfill. We must fight 'them', and fight we will.
