In Scranton, Pennsylvania, there is a heated debate going on. This debate regards peoples’ garbage. This city has one large lot where the garbage from the city is dumped. Behind this lot lays a few tall mountains. Over the years, the garbage has piled up high. In just a few months, the pile of garbage will be even taller than the mountains.
The people of Scranton want the city to stop using this lot for a variety of reasons. For starter, the garbage makes the area stink badly. People have a tough time sitting out on their porch or even letting their children play outside. They hate to smell garbage, especially those with a high mortgage payment.
The city has proposed to burn the garbage, but the public is not thrilled with this idea, either. If the garbage is burned on a daily basis, it will create bad toxins in the air. Burning the garbage will also create dirty air every single day. This burning also entails loud noise every single day that will irritate everyone in the region.
The city feels like they are in a stuck position because they cannot make the public happy no matter what. There are going to be several debates in the near future. These debates will feature testimony from both sides and hopefully a decision will be reached. The public would like this problem to be over as soon as possible. This problem has created nothing but chaos in the land for a long time now.
