Marlboro in Fierce Fight Against Landfill
April 1st, 2012

"You'll mess up the water. You can't breathe. And I don't want to look out and see buzzards flying everywhere."

WALLACE — Jars of pickled vegetables and canned goods arrived at lawyer Amy Armstrong’s office one day last summer.

She later found a used Volkswagen parked in the driveway of her nonprofit legal practice.

The modest gifts came from a group of Marlboro County citizens with little money but a big desire to keep a mega-garbage dump out of their community. It was their way of saying thanks for helping them fight the landfill.
