Gwinnett county Residents say NO to Waste Transfer Station

Hello all Gwinnett county Georgia and friends


We are very concern that the Gwinnett county Board of Commissioners is about to approve for a Solid Waste Transfer station (RZC 09-003) adjacent to a Vietnamese church which has about 4000 members (including about 800 children who attending church and Saturday/Sunday school there).  This waste station is also a few hundred feet from a Gwinnett county public school, and a nursing school.  The proposed Waste Station will be located at a chock point of I-85 interstate.  The additional number of trucks and traffics for this Waste Transfer Station will surely block off the road to Gwinnett Mall, Discovery Mill mall.

If build, this WASTE TRANSFER STATION (at 4400 Shackleford Rd, Norcross, GA 30093 near Beaver Ruin Rd) will receive TRASH from everywhere, not just from Gwinnett residents.  Trash from all surrounding counties will be dump here in our "Gwinnett Clean and Beautiful".  What clean and beautiful it will be when TRASH is put in the middle of our county?

Please call each and every Gwinnett county Board of Commissioners (listed below), write letters, write emails, call your state and local government representatives for help OPPOSE to this Waste Transfer Station.  The Board of Commissioners will VOTE on this issue on February 3rd, 2009 against the wills of Gwinnett county residents (thousand has came to OPPOSE it on both hearing on December 3rd, 2008 and December 16, 2008).  The Gwinnett county Planning Department voted NO on it.  The Gwinnett county CID voted AGAINST it.  No one wanted it EXCEPT Commissioner KEVIN KENERLY of District 4 and commissioner chairman CHARLES BANNISTER.  We do not know why both of these commissioners voted for it on December 16, 2008 to build this UNHEALTHY, DANGEROUS, TRAFFIC CLOGGING, UNWELCOME Waste Station.

Please sign this petition and at the same time CALL, EMAIL, WRITE LETTER to each of the Commissioners to let them know you are OPPOSING this Waste Station.  PLEASE HAVE IT DONE BEFORE FEBRUARY 3, 2009 Vote.

Thank You
We the undersigned respectfully request each and every Gwinnett County Board of Commissioners member to Vote "NO" and "OPPOSE" to the "SOLID WASTE TRANSFER STATION" at 4400 Shackleford Rd, Norcross, GA 30093 - RZC 09-003.  We would not put a liquor store next to a day care center for our children benefits.  Then a Solid Waste Station next to a School or church is totally unacceptable.  All we ask is that our children and those who come to worship GOD has a clean and healthy environment to Praise our LORDS and learn to be a GOOD citizen.

Thanks for taking time to read our letters and helping us.

In Christ,
