This will immediately follow the Department of Environmental Protection’s informational meeting about the En-Tire projected scheduled for 6 – 7:30p.m. at the same location.

The purpose of the Town Hall Meeting will be to discuss the DEP’s permit approval and next steps for the project, explain the risks this tire burner poses, and organize the community for the various tasks involved in fighting the incinerator.

“We are asking the community to come together to be better informed, present a united front of opposition, and volunteer in the effort to protect our children, public health and beautiful area from this threat to our community,” said The Rev. Dr. Leah Schade, coordinator and spokesperson for the team.

“As a resident of White Deer Township I know how adamantly this community stands against putting this tire burner here. We look forward to this meeting with our many interested neighbors who want to help stop it,” saidWhite Deer resident Pete Mackey.

The community is also urged to “like” the Facebook page, StoptheTireBurner, and sign the online petition available at change.org, under Tire Burner Team.
