Well, we have a few landfills that are probably not “sensitive”. But they border sensitive areas. The entire peninsula is a pretty much wetlands or bird habitat, or habitat for other animals. We gotta share. We’ve built on just about ever scrap of land we can without chasing all the flora, fauna, and wildlife away.
