Marlboro County, SC
Citizens For Marlboro County took their voices to Columbia, SC, on March 5th in protest of the MRR Southern, LLC proposed MEGA-DUMP in the Wallace area of their county. Over seventy people of all races came together for this event. Prepared statements were read in protest of how South Carolinas leaders have "opened their arms" to the waste industry. Some statements asked Governor Mark Sanford and the South Carolina General Assembly to change the laws concerning landfills in South Carolina.
Citizens For Marlboro County was organized in 2004 by a small
group of citizens concerned about the future of Marlboro County
and its citizens. What started out as a small group is now turned
into a large to enormous gathering of all races to try to change
the "bleak face" of Marlboro.
