Dump Documents Dispatches
So Many Documents, So Little Time!

This page is devoted to public distribution of core documents related to the West Old Town (Maine) Landfill project.

Most of these came from public agency and governmental sources. Many were obtained through use of Maine's Freedom of Information Access laws. Most of the documents raise questions that have never been adequately answered by the proponents of this project.

More information about the Old Town dump, including a detailed timeline of the dump project, can be found at Documents Access Page. These documents are presented as a joint project between We The People / Against The Dump and CommonCoordinates.com. If you have further information, suggestions, questions or corrections, please contact: Paul Schroeder or Stan Levitsky.
