The Rutherford County Chapter of SOCM hosts monthly general meetings on the third Tuesday of every month. We meet at SOCM Space (311 South Maney Avenue) in Murfreesboro at 6:30pm Central. Join us and get involved!
Concerned residents of Rutherford County, local SOCM members, and other allies are joining together to fight for real regulation of Middle Point Landfill – locals call it “Mt. Trashmore”. It is a giant earthen mound that continues to grow with each load of trash dumped there. The site is expanding so quickly that officials say it is running out of room. The stink from the landfill is impacting families living near or adjacent to the site. In fact, complaints about the landfill are mounting. Local citizens are also concerned about other possible environmental and health impacts, such as water pollution, air quality, and the safety of workers at the facility.
The #StopTheStink campaign is a grassroots effort to resolve local landfill issues and push for long-term, innovative, and sustainable waste solutions throughout Tennessee.
