The Department of Environmental Protection will host a public meeting to answer questions regarding Chrin Landfill’s permit application to expand its existing facility in Williams Township, Northampton County.
The meeting will take place January 25 from 6-9 p.m. at Wilson Area High School, 424 Warrior Lane, Easton, PA 18042.
During the meeting, department staff will answer questions about the permit review process. Also, staff from Chrin Landfill will answer questions regarding the expansion itself.
“The goal of this meeting is to help residents better understand how the department reviews permit expansion applications like this,” said Mike Bedrin, director of DEP’s Northeast Regional Office. “This is part of public outreach the department engages in so residents can have their questions answered.”
