Example of Trash in Furnace Road

One of the issues of having a landfill in the neighborhood is that trash falls out of the trucks every day. This picture was taken right in front of the landfill on Furnace Road on Jan. 28, 2014. This debris can fall out anywhere between the pickup point and the landfill.

This trailer is most likely coming from either Maryland or DC. It is a transfer trailer and it carries 22-24 tons of compacted debris. A 30 cu. yd. roll-off trailer carries about 4 tons on average. If it scales out at more than 5 tons, there is a surcharge of $60.00 per ton, per a quote given to a general contractor. By our truck counts on Furnace Road, we believe that ESI sources approximately 2/3 of its tonnage from DC and MD.

Here are 2 Roll-off trucks, the back end of a transfer trailer, 2 pieces of heavy equipment. Note the dust that is kicked up and the seagulls.

This is an example of traffic on Furnace Road – 3 trucks are queued up to turn into the gate at the landfill and a 100 cu. Yd. transfer trailer truck is coming out, and a car is in between.

Erosion and Trash are the Wrong Image for Lorton.

This is the Trash That We See Daily in Lorton. This is Not the Image We Want for Our Community for 27 More Years.

More Bare Naked Slopes – These Slopes Should Be Fully Vegetated Up to Within 20 Feet in Height From The Top Where Fill Operations Are Being Conducted. This is Another Violation of the Development Conditions of Their Existing Permit.

With I-95 in the Background, the Proposed Wind Turbines Will be Located Approximately Where the Large Truck is Dumping Debris. The Lorton Community Does Not Want to Have a Land Mark that is a Dump with 3 Wind Turbines.

A bald eagle sitting on top of the landfill – photo taken on Sunday Dec. 22,2013 about 2:00 pm. This is why we don’t think there will ever be a wind turbine on top of the hill because migratory birds and eagles can collide with the blades and die.
