Oppose the Frederick/Carroll County Waste to Energy Facility

976 Signatures Goal: 2,500

We the undersigned hereby affirm our opposition to the Frederick /Carroll County Waste-to-Energy Incinerator located at the McKinney Industrial Park in Frederick, MD. This project, if completed, will not only dirty the air, soil, and water that serve as the backbone for our highly productive farmland, pastures, and waterways, but also will cause irreversible impacts to the health of our growing community.

This incinerator will not only cost the taxpayers of Frederick County 100’s of millions annually over the next 30 years, but it will also have a negative impact on housing prices, local markets and restaurants that rely on “organic” farming, and businesses that depend on tourism driven by Frederick County’s vibrant outdoor natural resources and the deep history of the Monocacy National Battlefield.


We urge Frederick County to pursue cleaner alternatives that prevent waste and create local jobs and revenues through reuse, recycling, composting and other strategies.


Sign below by May 15, 2013. A letter containing the total # of signatures will be sent to the Maryland Department of Environment prior to their May 20th public comment deadline.


NOTE: After signing, you will receive a request to donate to this web service. If you are not interested in donating, please just close the window. Your signature will be recorded.


Thank you!

    "Public health and safety" trumps all other issues and considerations. It is well know that proven waste handling and processing alternatives are available to a "waste-to-energy" facility that emits toxic and carcinogenic effluents, and adversely impacts 22 neighboring schools; that is, approximately 11,000 children.

    There are much better, more efficient and ecological solution. This incinerator is close the school. They will produce Dioxin, hevay metals extremly damaging for health and environment. I think the only benefeciary would be the current officials who are involved in the construction business and can profit from such a backward investment.
