The 130 Showdown

VOTE MARCH 6, 2018

Caldwell County Commissioners have surrendered the legal fight against the proposed 17 story tall Green Group dump on 130, ignoring concerns of shoddy engineering and fire safety. The new Commissioners Court will decide the fate of thousands of children.

Bump the Dump

Environmental Protection in the Interest of Caldwell County (“EPICC”) is a grassroots movement of local residents who joined together in October 2013 to take action against the proposed landfill (aka SH130 Environmental Park) to be located at the Northeast corner of Highway 183 and F.M. 1185, just North of Lockhart.
