On Monday, June 25, 2018, Citizens Against the Landfill in Hempstead
(CALH) learned that Green Group Holdings LLC (GGH) will no longer pursue
a permit to build the Pintail Landfill in Hempstead.
The press release issued by GGH announced that the company will
abandon pursuit of the Pintail Landfill permit on the property along Hwy
6 near Hempstead, bringing welcome news that CALH and its many
supporters have been waiting to hear for a long time. Based on past
experience, however, some will not feel totally at ease until the
property is sold by GGH and a beneficial use for the property is found.
Nevertheless, it does appear that CALH’s members and supporters have
achieved the near impossible and a huge victory for our small,
determined community by never accepting the ‘It’s a Done Deal’ argument.
