Environmental and health advocates are joining them in a protest outside Stericycle’s incinerator Tuesday evening, and representatives from the group will be meeting with the Director of the state’s Division of Air Quality to voice their concerns Wednesday morning. Among the protestors concerns is the use of a bypass stack which allows the company to release unfiltered, toxic pollutants like dioxin and mercury directly into the air.</p> Tue, 02 Jul 2013 22:25:42 +0000 Andrea Smardon 31822 at http://kuer.org North Salt Lake Residents Upset About Unfiltered Emissions from Medical Waste Incinerator
