Newly-formed Estill Co. non-profit to rally against dumping of radioactive waste

IRVINE, Ky. (WTVQ) – Estill Co. citizens have formed a non-profit group focusing on the dumping of radioactive waste at Advanced Disposal Inc.’s Blue Ridge Landfill.

The Concerned Citizens of Estill County, Inc. (CCEC) say they are aiming for transparency from the state when it comes to disclosing what is dumped at the site, and say they intend to ensure that proper and safe disposal of all materials is implemented, while pursuing accountability on all levels.

The CCEC will hold a rally on Saturday, July 16 from 5:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. at the football field at Estill County High School, which sits directly across Route 89 from Advanced Disposal’s Blue Ridge Landfill in Irvine, Kentucky.

The rally is a call for action on the reported illegal dumping of nearly 2000 tons of radioactive fracking waste at the landfill.
