Here is an example of a Cement Factory on a waterfront. DO YOU REALLY WANT THIS IN VALLEJO?
500 TRUCKS A DAY??? The proposed site is on the end of a residential street. Nearly 500 diesel trucks...huge 18-wheelers...will use the facility each day. They'll drive by people's homes, shops, churches, a playground and school.
JOBS? ORCEM says it's bringing lots of jobs to Vallejo. BUT HOW MANY JOBS TO DO SEE ON ORCEM'S APPLICATION? (Also, ORCEM's parent company locked out the unions for years)
DUBLIN, IRELAND Here is the company's site in Ireland. IMAGINE THAT DUST BLOWING ALL OVER VALLEJO AND INTO THE NAPA RIVER.
An overseas corporation ECOCEM wants to bulldoze the old General Mills (on the left) and build a 24x7 factory to grind industrial waste from Asia into cement. LOOK HOW CLOSE TO HOUSES THE FACTORY WOULD BE!
ORCEM is too close to an Elementary School. "Don't worry," says ORCEM. "The wind doesn't blow that way." DO YOU BELIEVE ORCEM REALLY CARES ABOUT VALLEJO'S KIDS?
ORCEM'S CANCER MAP Here is the map ORCEM's consultants created. DO YOU KNOW SOMEONE WHO LIVES ON ORCEM'S CANCER MAP?
