Lawsuit filed in Southbridge against Casella Waste

In the Commonwealth of MA, we should be on a path to zero waste, per the Department of Environmental Protection's Solid Waste Master Plan. But in the tri-town area of Southbridge/Charlton/Sturbridge in central MA, there's a leaking landfill---which Casella wants to expand---that has polluted precious drinking water and contaminated natural resources, per the lawsuit filed today by the National Environmental Law Center (NELC). MASSPIRG stands with the citizens, the organizations, and NELC in calling for accountability and clean up. 

Protect Yourself Against New Account ID Theft

The first defense against any kind of identity theft is to be vigilant about protecting your personal information by taking steps like creating secure passwords, installing anti-virus and anti-malware software, and shredding personal documents. However, if and when someone does steal enough of your information to commit any form of identity theft there is really only one type of identity theft that you can stop before it happens: New account identity theft, where someone opens a new account in your name.
