The fracking industry has a problem – it generates toxic, radioactive waste in the forms of mud from drilling, and liquid from the chemical cocktails used to get fossil fuels from deep underground – and they don’t know where to put it.

Take action to keep radioactive liquid fracking waste out of our landfills!

Right now, ODNR is working to include language in the state budget that would allow fracking waste to be blended with dirt and used as “daily cover” in Ohio’s landfills. We know enough about Ohio’s poor reputation for landfills to be sure that this is not the answer.

Tell your senator to keep us safe from radioactive waste!

This fall, the Ohio legislature will be reviewing landfill regulations. This review – not the budget – is the right time to make appropriate amendments that do the right thing to keep radioactive waste out of landfills.
