Dear Friends and Neighbors,
We at the Silicon Valley Foundation for Better Environment (SVFBE) are committed to the cause of a better environment for the growing population and worldly visitors of the Silicon Valley.
The Newby Landfill is the last operating landfill by the San Francisco Bay. It is applying to expand to 245 feet high, and extend its operation to beyond year 2040.
In an effort to stop the expansion, we are trying to petition the cities in the Silicon Valley to stop giving business to waste management service providers that send garbage to the Newby Landfill.
The City of Milpitas is evaluating a 10+ year contract for garbage collection. We are launching a petition to stop Milpitas from giving business to Newby, unless proper measures are taken by Republic Services, the company that operates the Newby Landfill.
Whether you live/work near the Newby Landfill, or simply drive by or visit the Bay Area occasionally, if you would like restored wetlands and reduced catastrophic risk in time of natural disaster in the world-famous Silicon Valley, please take a little time to sign the petition by following this link:
Please join us in this meaningful quest. Our future generations will be thankful that you voiced out today.
We encourage you to forward this letter to any citizen of the world who wishes for a better environment in the Silicon Valley.

Shut down the landfill
I do not support the expansion of Newby landfill. The foul smell coming from the landfill is making it very difficult for us. This creates a hazardous environment for health with poor unbearable air quality.
Its simply. The landfill has to go. Why are we even entertaining them.
