Environmental Ethics Class Visits Madison County Landfill

Posted April 17, 2012
Tags Environmental Ethics Katheryn Doran Philosophy

Students in Professor Katheryn Doran’s  Philosophy 235 (Environmental Ethics) class visited the Madison County landfill on April 6. Doran said the class had the opportunity to see firsthand both the challenges of figuring out where and how to get rid of the staggering amount and variety of garbage  Americans cast off weekly. 

 

She also hoped to impress upon them the importance of thinking about and working on unglamorous, local civic environmental matters like landfill construction and maintenance. Madison County has the only 100-year landfill plan in the United States.
