Now que all of the complaints when our garbage rates increase for our home service as well as the fee's to dump at the transfer center too. How many more illegal dumps will happen in the woods as a result of a closure?


Who is this "public" wanting to close Riverbend permanently? Not in TFA, and I've read it over and over.

TJ1104, where do you live? McMinnville garbage does not go to this dump. Do you know that when it did we paid higher garbage rates than the customers at the beach that had their garbage dumbed here. Hopefully this dumb closes FOREVER!


Given the operator's track record, treating their assurances with some skepticism seems to be in order. It's a lousy place to site a dump and should have been elsewhere in the first place.....
