Public Meeting at the 
Rose Hill Community Center on Lambson Lane
Wednesday, February 2nd, 7:00 PM

Topic: Proposed Philpower Incinerator Sites

 PLEASE COME AND EXPRESS YOUR VIEWS.

                                                  Call 302.656.8513 for directions

Please plan to attend the meeting on Feb 2nd.  We will focus on a variety of actions designed to kick Philpower out of Delaware and enact state and county legislation to limit incinerators to remote sites, or ban them entirely. 

Philpower Corporation of North Carolina has tried again and again to find a site for its waste incinerator in Delaware.  Two proposed sites for the Philpower incinerator are on South Market Street near Wilmington and on Porter Road in Bear.   Philpower is also looking at other undisclosed sites. We have conflicting information on whether the South Market Street site has been abandoned, but Philpower is definitely pursuing the Bear site.

 The site in Bear is at 1190 Porter Rd. in Bear, DE. Within 1 1/2 miles of the proposed Bear waste burner are more than 28 communities, including:
 
Waterford
Glendale
Corbit Glen
Scarborough Manor
Moores Acres
Tolham Estates
Country Woods
Emerald Ridge
Lauren Farms
