Georgia Pacific backs away from dumping decision
GREEN BAY -- Georgia-Pacific is backing off a proposal to dump contaminated river sediment in a landfill it owns in Green Bay.
The company says local opposition led to the decision. But cleanup of the Fox River remains on schedule and the Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources says the PCBs will have to go somewhere.
Georgia-Pacific is one of seven paper companies that must pay to remove PCBs from the river.
