Across North Carolina there are over 2,500 environmental hazard sites including chemical spills, disposal sites, and buried landfills. Disproportionately the 656 sites of pre-regulatory landfills buried throughout the state are found in neighborhoods of color.

This project examines the health impacts of a buried landfill in the Cottage Grove neighborhood of Greensboro, NC and the process for addressing the legacy of environmental injustices. The project engages the Cottage Grove community to document the impact of the buried waste on neighborhood residents. It also works to empower residents and raise environmental awareness with the goal of remediating the park and making it once again a safe and usable social and recreational greenspace.
