We know there is a lot of information on this website. But if you are able to read through it all (over time), you will be substantially up to speed with what is truly at issue here regarding the Coffin Butte Landfill.
Also, check back periodically. We will try to keep this website up to date as new information comes to light.
Would you like to be notified when new posts are made? Email us and we’ll figure out a system for doing that (we’re a grass-roots group, so be patient while we figure out the best system for this!).
Each newspaper will have its own guidelines for letters to the editor. Check the publication’s site for the details. Here are a few direct links to get you started:
Although we successfully “stopped” the landfill’s first attempt to expand, they will try again, so we want to be prepared. Funds collected will continue to be used to help pay for an attorney to advise us; to print signs, mailers and other awareness-raising materials; to help offset the cost of maintaining this website (such as host fees – all web work is volunteer), etc. No donation is too small.
You can donate by mailing a check payable to “VNEQS” to:
VNEQS 37340 Moss Rock Dr Corvallis, OR 97330-9355
OR you can donate via our Go Fund Me campaign page. (As of 9-12-22 this GFM page still is about our old campaign to stop the first expansion, however the funds still come to us. We just need to update the campaign story! First we had to update this website though.)
We’ve paused our distribution of yard signs for now, because the initial landfill expansion application was withdrawn (see Blog post “The Backstory”). However, they intend to try again. Want to be ready to place a sign when that happens? Email us with your name and address and we’ll be in touch when the time comes.
