We are Riverbend neighbors and other private citizens, local farmers, commuters, tourists, and business owners, including the Oregon wine industry. Citizens and visitors in Yamhill County oppose continued operation or expansion of Riverbend Landfill because a landfill in farmland damages crops, and a dump next to the river is an environmental catastrophe waiting to happen.
Stop the Dump Coalition represents each of us who see the damage that Riverbend Landfill is currently causing and will continue to cause if the landfill is allowed to remain open beyond August 31, 2030 -- the expiration date in its closure permit -- or to expand onto more prime farm land.
Stop the Dump Coalition will work tirelessly to insure that DEQ follows through on its commitment to close this environmentally dangerous landfill.
The Stop the Dump Coalition--including Coalition Partners and Waste Not of Yamhill County, Stop the Dump Coalition's 501(c)4 fund-raising arm--opposes continued operation and/or expansion of Riverbend Landfill.

We want Yamhill County and its waste handlers to:
