Brockton Concerned With Landfill Berm

A Brockton councillor is upset with the Hanover-Walkerton Landfill Committee.

Chris Peabody says the engineering firm promised in 2009 to build a large berm with trees, so residents would not see or hear the landfill. But he claims this promise has not been kept, and bags and other garbage are blowing out of the landfill into the ditches.

Last month, a contract was awarded to build the berm and trees. But Peabody says he wants the Hanover Works director come to a meeting to show Brockton council the plans.
