[Event post at LetsBanFracking.org] (http://www.letsbanfracking.org/index.php/events/event/1099-belleville-van-buren-township-hall-township-meeting-regarding-radioactive-waste) From the [Detroit Free Press Aug 25th article] (http://www.freep.com/article/20140825/NEWS06/308250180/Michigan-radioactive-waste-fracking) A Van Buren Township hazardous-waste landfill operator, slated to receive up to 36 tons of low-level radioactive waste from a Pennsylvania fracking company, announced Monday that it will suspend receipt of such materials from all oil and gas operations pending a review by the state. EQ, a USEcology company, made its determination as Gov. Rick Snyder announced plans to form a panel of experts to look at Michigan’s standards for disposing of low-level radioactive waste. EQ has accepted the waste — known as technologically enhanced, naturally occurring radioactive materials, or TENORM — from Michigan and other states at its Wayne Disposal landfill, located between Willow Run Airport and I-94 near Belleville. “We look forward to supporting this important review,” Simon Bell, EQ executive vice president of operations, said in a statement. “We take pride in our proven ability as one of the few companies with the expertise to safely manage this material.”
