WM Staff Discover Rare California Gnatcatchers in El Sobrante Landfill Wildlife Preserve
El Sobrante Landfill staff were pleasantly surprised in May 2012 to find three new baby California Gnatcatchers born on its Wildlife Preserve, a 688 acres protected open space habitat. The Wildlife Preserve's habitat conservation plan has a goal of reaching 11 pairs of California Gnatcatchers. The discovery is a huge accomplishment considering that three years ago, two-thirds of the land burned due to an illegal trespasser. At that time, seven pairs were lost. The California Gnatcatcher was Federally-listed as a threatened species in the 90's. The site biologist, Cindy Daverin, gives a closer look at their behavior.

Once A Landfill, Now A Recreation Destination
Summary A problem faced by modern society, which is exponentially increasing in importance, is the dilemma brought forth by modern landfills and what to do with them after their closing. We propose the idea of converting a landfill into a destination that can be used by society for both recreational purposes and seizing the opportunity to develop a self sustaining green infrastructure complex. This complex containing a golf course, water park, and indoor ski arena, on top of the capped fill, will utilize the methane gas emissions of the decomposing organic matter as a way of generating power to run the facility. Not only do we plan on repurposing but also attempting to increase the rate of decomposition by recommending a leachate recycling system. The landfill chosen for this project is Puente Hills in Los Angeles. Puente Hills is set to close in November of 2013.

Landfill Becomes Nature Park
A landfill becomes a nature park. The Mucking Landfill in Essex, England was one of the largest trash dumps in Europe. For 50 years, trash from London was shipped down the River Thames to the 845 acre Essex landfill, creating a layer of waste 80 feet deep. Now, after a project costing around 3.8 million dollars, part of it has been turned into a nature preserve for rare wild flowers and wildlife. The location has been turned into a nature park, where all kinds of wildlife can be found thanks to the Essex Wildlife Trust. Several species of birds have been observed in the area, along with harvest mice, newts, orchids and adders to name a few. Sir David Attenborough, president emeritus of The Wildlife Trusts said that the "project is visionary and one of many remarkable projects led by The Wildlife Trusts around the UK that bring benefits to the natural world and communities." Another landfill in Grimsby, England is going to be transformed into a 17 acre park and the location of 250 prospective homes. The site in Grimsby has not been used for anything since the 1970s.

Landfill transformed into model park
The Hiriya Recycling Park is a testament to Israel's out-of-the-box approach to greening the country. Just outside of Tel Aviv, a half-mile long landfill was once an environmental nightmare. Basically a huge mountain of smelly garbage, Hiriya wasn't the sort of place you'd want to live near, let alone visit. But today the site is used as an environmental educational facility, a natural bio-gas supplier and a transfer station. What's more, it will soon be the site of a family-oriented recycling park. Doron Sapir, head of the site, explains that 84 wells were drilled into the dump to capture the methane gas produced by the rubbish. The gas is delivered by pipe to a textile plant about four kilometers from the dump, powering the entire operation. "We are an eco-ecological facility," says Sapir, showing how all materials are separated and recycled. "What is unique here is that all over the world they are separating the waste in dry facilities, [using a] dry process. These Israeli guys thought the other way around: Not only are they not drying the waste, they are putting it into water!" Any day of the week, you can see schoolchildren of all ages come to visit and learn all about how to reduce, reuse and recycle.

LAND FILL : The Politics of Waste
LAND FILL: The Politics of Waste is a speculative design project by Louise Krstic as part of her thesis for Masters of Landscape Architecture at The University of Melbourne, completed in November 2013. Using the politics of waste as a theoretical lens, the project explores the contentious proposal for a new landfill in the Mornington Peninsula Shire. Design research reveals that although the portrayed by the media as a battle between local residence and big business, the issue is far more complicated. By exploring the sociopolitical and volumetric conditions surrounding the proposal at the Old Pioneer Quarry, it is revealed that although opposing the landfill proposal, it is the residents who are contributing to waste generation and demand for a new landfill in the Shire. LAND FILL sets up a regional strategy for the reduction and diversion of waste from landfill at existing and proposed waste management facilities in the Mornington Peninsula Shire. Using the Old Pioneer Quarry as a case study putting these strategies into practice. The strategy unfolds over time, yet is highly contingent on the volume of waste generated by the community. The results of the strategies of sorting and reduction of waste are directly translated into a multifunctional and adaptive landscape with the power to generate sociopolitical change and become a region precedent.

Garraf Waste Landfill Landscape Restoration
The Vall d’en Joan waste dump opened in 1974 in a valley in the limestone massif of El Garraf, Barcelona, in the Natural Park of the same name. The restoration project defines a pattern of topographic configuration with terraces, side slopes, drainage system of internal fluids (separated of the external drainage net), biogas extraction net, pathways and plantation by phases. The whole restoration project goal is that Parc Del Garraf absorbs the dump by using the local forest tissue and supporting the establishment of primary ecosystems and its development and succession which thought the time will turn to adapted situations to the site environment. The plantation process is being done through strong local species with a few pouring demand and already adapted to the place environment. The vegetal structure planned with different local sorts of shrubs (such as bardissa, brolla or mediterranian màquia) and trees organizes the plantation project. Infilling began at the lowest point. Shrubs and trees were eliminated, the site was waterproofed with clayey soils, a drainage system was installed for the leachate and work began on the superposition of layers of waste matter, alternating with shallow layers of earth. As the bottom of the valley was filled in, the waterproofing was extended. The landfill now occupies 70 hectares with a depth of waste matter of over 80 meters at some points. At the start of the restoration project, a layer of earth covered the latest deposit of refuse. A large concrete ditch separates virgin land from the operational waste dump and channels drain runoff from the mountainside. Semi-clean waters and runoff water from the working area accumulate in a reservoir, where they are treated. The restoration process began at the lowest levels while the waste tip is still in use higher up. A new and completely different system was superposed on the existing one, and the two will coexist until the dump is closed. Restoration will only be complete three years after closure. Waste Deposit Restoration seeks to return the public use of this area. The proximity to urban areas, access and parking facilities make of it, a well linked side as well as a new entrance or “gate” to Parc Natural del Garraf which is also in connection with the long distance 92-GR pathway.

Rising Up - A Labour of Love
After six weeks of successfully protecting Stapleton Allotments in the Avon & Frome Valley Conservation Area from destruction, at around 6pm on Sun 15 March the last of the tree protectors were brought down to applause, cheers and tears from emotional supporters. Rising Up activists and campaigners are now seriously concerned about the wellbeing of the land and wildlife no longer under their watchful eye. The 4 day complex and drawn out eviction demonstrated the persistence and ingenuity of the activists as well as their resolve to protect this land for as long as possible. It was also a display of the strength of their conviction that the destruction of the land and trees for the M32 MetroBus road is wholly unjustified and totally unnecessary. The eviction, although generally peaceful, was marred by some instances of aggression and assaults on activists, mainly by security. These have been logged and will be reported to the Council in an official complaint. Rising Up utterly condemn the mindless damage to the wildlife habitat during the eviction including bulldozers crashing through woodland copse and bramble, and scrub – all prime wildlife habitats, there has been no evidence of surveys or techniques, which would mitigate and lessen the impact on reptiles, bats and birds in this wildlife rich Conservation Area. Rising Up have submitted a statement to Bristol City Council Officials, including the Mayor, for the next Full Council meeting. The statement demands the immediate cessation of works at Stapleton allotments until a) the funding for the route is secured b) The planning and development conditions and full consents have been clarified as well met to ensure no breach of planning regulations c) There is clear evidence and assurance of that any works carried out will be done so under environmental management plans, adhering to legislation and planning control. Thus mitigating the impact on wildlife and their habitat, which so far there has been no evidence of. We would like to express our gratitude to the many people who have supported and taken part in this direct action, without whom this would not have been possible. We would like to reassure people that although we are no longer in occupation, we remain committed to our aims; to protect the land at Stapleton allotments, to stop the MetroBus road and to challenge the flawed decisions and processes that have allowed this development to take place. We will also continue to raise awareness of the important issues of food security, land, community and earth rights. This is not the end of this story by any means – just the next chapter, we will continue Rising Up…watch this space!

A Brief Tour of Arpley Landfill
This short tour of Arpley Landfill in Warrington was lead by the Ranger at the Moore Nature Reserve. The Landfill is 400 acres in size, and the Company (FCC) funds the 180 acre nature reserve. The vast array of pipes on site channel methane gas to an electricity plant, where it apparently generates enough power for over 20,000 homes. When the landfill is finally capped and hermetically sealed, the entire site will become a Nature Reserve. Located almost in the center of Warrington, this eyesore and nuisance will one day be transformed into an asset for all.

Seguin City Leaders Oppose Landfill -- Grace White
Seguin neighbors are worried a proposed landfill could spoil their city. Tonight,  they weighed in on the plans at city hall.It's a message you can't miss. If you drive down FM 1150 near Dix Road in Guadalupe County, these signs are posted on fences and properties near the site of the proposed Post Oak Landfill. "Our water that's what we are worried about," said Fran Cheshire, a neighbor "E.P.A. says it's not if they leak, it's when they leak, all of them will leak," said Richard Mergele, another neighbor. "All these water companies they've got too much money invested in water companies and water districts to take a chance on polluting the aquifer."The site is 12 miles east of the city, just south of I-10. The company proposing the landfill,  "Post Oak Clean Green," declined an interview. On their website, they say there are plans to build a state of the art recycling center, a composting facility, an environmental research center and a wildlife management facility."What council did here tonight is approve a resolution that the city of Seguin opposes the formation of the landfill," said Betty Ann Matthies, Mayor of Seguin. But, the real power lies with the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality. Right now, the agency is reviewing project plans and would have to issue a permit before the Post Oak Landfill can operate.Posted by: Grace WhiteFollow Grace on Twitter @Grace__White and on Facebook

You would have assumed in this situation once would be bad enough and that an implementation of corrective measure would have been ...done to make sure this did not happen again. I have been informed that the best of resources were available for this project, yet water and contaminants are discharged from the Sediment Basin above the Performance Standard. In a professional setting a backup plan would have been initiated from the beginning to throughout any reoccurrences of any major problem, such as an overflow, apparently you people think either so little of the people of Throop or so little of the environment to allow such shotty workmanship to be done. You are very creative in issuing reports and pictures of this site to make it look like you are in accordance with government regulations. I have pictures and videos of these events and it shows a much different story of what exactly I feel is not in accordance with specifications set forth for a project like this All such pictures and videos show your garbage entering the Lackawanna River, a river that the government spends a lot of taxpayers' money to clean from all the unregulated policies of past corporations, like mining which polluted the river. Many states realize the past mistakes and are doing much to clean the waterways like the Lackawanna River to be enjoyed by people and wildlife together. Just alone in Archbald they have a three mile stretch for trophy trout fishing and walking and jogging trails were put in to enjoy the beauty of the river As the late Manny Gordon said " ENJOY ENJOY.

Cedar Cove Land for Tigers
GoFundMe Campaign: https://www.gofundme.com/landfortigers Website: http:www.saveoursiberians.org Facebok: https://www.facebook.com/CedarCoveParkStaff/ Cedar Cove is a non-profit Conservatory and Education Center located just South of Kansas City in Louisburg, Kansas. The park was open to the public in 2000 by William Pottorff with the goal of preserving endangered species from extinction while educating about the impending threats humans pose in the forms of illegal poaching and trade, environmental impact and the wholesale destruction of habitats and ecosystems for commercial trade. From its inception, the park has been home to dozens of animals taken in as rescues from private ownership or the exotic trade as well as re-homes of animals from other facilities or abandoned wildlife run afoul of human activity. Sitting on 11 acres donated by friend, neighbor and conservationist George Criswell, volunteer effort has developed and expanded the habitats to the fullest use of the land available to accommodate the growing number of animals that continue to come to Cedar Cove as their fate both in the wild and in captivity presses closer. William Pottorff passed away in 2012 and trusted his legacy to Steve Klein and Bettie Auch who continue to expand upon William's vision to provide first-class veterinary care and enrichment for the animals as well as a leading-edge educational curriculum engaging preschoolers, students and seniors alike with a message of hope and empowerment. Bettie and Steve manage the operations with a diverse group of educated, conservation minded individuals with a passion for big cats and other predators. Steve left Kansas City in 2012 and took up residence on the property to continue Williams vigil. Cedar Cove's volunteers are one-of-a-kind individuals who prioritize their life decisions around the care of Cedar Cove and the animals. Operations run year-round and include educational outreach programs, group and private tours, and participation in various recycling programs for expired meat, including Wal-Mart, that diverts consumer waste away from landfills and into the many ready mouths at Cedar Cove. Now in its 16th year, Cedar Cove has the opportunity to purhcase an additional 130 acres of undeveloped property adjacent to the existing grounds. In addition to providing the opportunity to care for more animals in need with greatly expanded habitats, future plans call for the creation of a sustainable aquaponic greenhouse and classroom, wildlife rehabillitation center, nature trail, observatory and more, all set within the serenity of lands systematically re-wilded to a living forrest. Projected trends of habitat and species loss are making conservation awareness and education more important than ever, and it is these very projects that showcase the diversity of Kansas City and bring positive change to entire communities. Cedar Cove has seen a sharp rise in attendance not just with repeat visitors, but with groups coming from out of state, even out of country, bringing revenue to local communities and taking with them an awareness that lasts a lifetime. We need your help now to raise $80,000 by July 1st, 2017 to secure the available 129 acres and the future growth of this conservatory and it’s educational message. Please consider a gift to Cedar Cove to ensure these beautiful and important animals are still with us for you children and their great-grandchildren to appreciate and enjoy. Your help in supporting this endeavor will create a wonderful legacy of hope and inspiration that will end

Birds and animals look for food at Baragaon landfill - Guwahati
Endangered Greater Adjutant Storks patiently await their turn along with other birds and animals at a landfill near Guwahati, Assam. They await their turn patiently at the garbage table, every time a fresh truckload of garbage enters the landfill people rush to it first, and once they are done with their pickings the storks move in filling their gullets with rotten meat. The greater adjutant (Leptoptilos dubius) is a member of the stork family, Ciconiidae. Its genus includes the lesser adjutant of Asia and the marabou stork of Africa. Once found widely across southern Asia, mainly in India but extending east to Borneo, the greater adjutant is now restricted to a much smaller range with only two small breeding populations; one in India with the largest colony in Assam and the other in Cambodia. Populations disperse after the breeding season. This large stork has a massive wedge-shaped bill, a bare head and a distinctive neck pouch. During the day, they soar in thermals along with vultures with whom they share the habit of scavenging. They feed mainly on carrion and offal; however, they are opportunistic and will sometimes prey on vertebrates. The English name is derived from their stiff "military" gait when walking on the ground. Large numbers once lived in Asia, but have declined greatly, possibly due to improved sanitation, to the point of being endangered. The total population in 2008 was estimated at around a thousand individuals. In the 19th century, they were especially common in the city of Calcutta, where they were referred to as the "Calcutta adjutant". Known locally as hargila (derived from the Sanskrit word for "bone-swallower") and considered to be unclean birds, they were largely left undisturbed but sometimes hunted for the use of their meat in folk medicine. Valued as scavengers, they were once used in the logo of the Calcutta Municipal Corporation.

Underwater trash collectors fight Greece’s plastic addiction
(5 Apr 2018) Dressed in black and preparing his gear with loud zips-and-clicks, George Sarelakos looks more like he's about to storm a building than take part in a nature campaign. Joined by four other volunteer divers, he has a challenging mission: clear plastic waste from the sea floor that's suffocating Greece's marine life. In heavy rain, they struggle to clamber on and off rocks along a stretch of coastline south of Athens favored by daytrippers looking for a nice place to swim within driving distance. In January, the European Union launched a major campaign to reduce plastic waste across its 28 member states. Greece starts 12-year programme with a major set of disadvantages: An alarming rate of single-use plastic consumption, a waste management system largely neglected during a decade-long financial crisis, and the longest coastline in the EU - nearly double the length of India. Within an hour of their dive, Sarelakos and his rubber-suited companions bring up large clumps of rubbish, mostly old tires tied into bundles with rope. A curious dolphin inspects their work before darting off to a nearby fish farm. In a 2015 study, researchers trawled five coastal areas in the eastern Mediterranean and found that 60 percent of the marine litter detected was in the Saronic Gulf bordering greater Athens. And 95 percent of that rubbish was plastic, much of it single-use items like supermarket carrier bags and drinks bottles. The EU plans to make all plastic packaging on the market recyclable by 2030, and wants member states to crack down in single-use plastic, with consumers using no more than 40 lightweight plastic bags annually by 2025. A few countries have already zoomed past that target: Finns on average use just four plastic bags a year. But for Greeks _ now accustomed to sipping coffee out of plastic cups using plastic straws and with kiosk beverage coolers within easy reach over every city dweller _ it's become part of the lifestyle. They use 296 bags per year, according to the EU Commission, while local surveys suggest the number is even higher. Greek stores began charging for plastic bags on Jan. 1 _ a relatively small step for a country still heavily reliant on coal-fired power plants and which is regularly fined for its large number of unregulated rubbish dumps. Only 16 percent of rubbish is recycled here, compared to the EU's average of 44 percent. Nearly everything else ends up buried in dumps. At Fyli, the country's largest landfill on the outskirts of the capital, earthmovers constantly reshape mountains of rubbish in a quarried hillside squeezing out a dark liquid called leachate to leave enormous stacks of brown-coated plastic. Garbage trucks are coordinated by loudspeaker, followed by packs of seagulls ready to swoop on the new rubbish before it gets crushed. The site's environmental officer, Ioanna Kapsimali, also takes part as a volunteer diver in Athens cleanups. She says it's impossible to contain all the plastic at the landfill. Pieces of rubbish, including bottle caps and cigarette lighters, end up in the stomachs of birds and marine creatures, tangled in nests, or on the feet of seaside animals. A few lucky animals end up at Maria Ganoti's Athens clinic to be saved. The director of a local charity, the Greek Wildlife Care Association, or Anima, treats an injured seagull, and describes the danger of animals eating plastic over the loud squawk of other injured birds. According to campaigners, Greeks are largely unaware of their country's plastic problem because bathing water quality remains high in most parts of the country and most of the pollution is not visible. But visit a shoreline not used by bathers and the picture can quickly change.

California's Water & Radioactive Waste - CHOICEPOINT
CHOICEPOINT - California's Water & Radioactive Waste https://youtu.be/nvhazAzcTYQ In 1989, a small group of Californians – including EON Co-Director Mary Beth Brangan - began a movement to stop a planned nuclear waste dump at Ward Valley in the Mojave Desert near the Colorado River. It would have endangered the water supply of Arizona, Southern California and Northern Mexico. Considered by many a hopeless cause, the movement grew to include scientists, environmentalists and the regions’ Native American tribes. After a ten-year battle, in 1999, a judge’s ruling brought an end to the planned dump. This film - produced in 1992 & re-mastered from an archival copy - tells the story of that successful movement’s beginning.
