Well, folks, that was quite a parade we the citizens of Morenci and beyond were treated to over the weekend, wasn’t it? For those who were not able to witness this spectacular event, or do not understand why, here it is.

Apparently the Vreba-Hoff factories on U.S. 127 and Dillon Highway in Michigan have once again generated more waste than they have land on which to dump it. So they were simply transferring it to their newest satellite waste pit at the Chesterfield factory in Fulton County, Ohio.

I had more than a few people call and ask if this was legal for them to do. I’m not the one you should be asking. You should be asking your lawmakers in Lansing, Columbus and Washington. They are the ones responsible for making and enforcing the laws of our land that these factory operators seem to be thumbing their noses at.

Doesn’t it make you wonder why they did this on Friday afternoon, all night Friday, all day Saturday until way past dark, and then all day Sunday? It’s now Monday and it appears they are all done hauling. The government oversight agencies are open again. What do you think will happen now?

The truth is this has nothing to do with farming and nutrient management, but everything to do with industry and hazardous waste disposal. Anybody want to venture a guess where all that waste is eventually going to end up?
