Lately, Robert Long has been getting a lot of questions from employees.
The human resources director at C.A.P.S. Inc., a manufacturer of plastic lids for consumer staples such as Parmesan cheese and spice containers, works less than a mile from the Bridgeton Landfill.
Some of the 130 employees at C.A.P.S. have asked whether there’s a potential for an explosion should an underground fire at the Bridgeton Landfill reach radioactive waste in the adjacent West Lake Landfill.
