Hartford Landfill Closure

Organization(s) Connecticut Dept. of Environmental Protection
Project Description Over 70 people, including business owners, community leaders, local and state officials, college students, and neighborhood activists, attended a community forum on the Hartford Landfill in November 2004. The forum was a chance for the community to discuss the facts and issues affecting the upcoming closure of the landfill, a regional facility that accepts waste and ash from 69 Connecticut towns. The Hartford Neighborhood Environmental Partnership (HNEP) co-sponsored the event.

The CT DEP's Office of Pollution Prevention initiated the HNEP in 1995 after receiving a grant to work with low-income Hartford neighborhoods to enhance economic opportunities and quality of life by raising environmental awareness and furthering environmental compliance. Along with DEP and neighborhood organizations, the partnership now includes representatives of city and regional government and non-profits promoting community gardening and advocating for health and environmental justice. The HNEP recently received an award from the Connecticut Coalition for Environmental Justice for its outstanding efforts to improve Hartford's environment.
