      Siting Hazardous Waste Treatment Facilities: The NIMBY Syndrome is a careful examination of the multiple difficulties in siting a facility for the treatment of hazardous will be of interest to those who seek an understanding of the social, cultural and psychological components of public opposition to locating such a facility in one's community. HAZARDOUS WASTE FACILITY IMPACT ISSUES AND PUBLIC OPPOSITION Overcoming public opposition is a critical factor in the siting of HWMFs in the United States. Public opposition to HWMFs stems from a number of potential impacts associated with these facilities.

      The principal barrier to facility siting is community opposition: “not in my backyard”. Experience amply justifies this opposition. Communities have learned, largely from the media, that hazardous waste facilities endanger public health, air and water quality, property values, peace of mind and quality of life.   It doesn't seem to matter whether we are talking about energy from fossil fuels or renewable sources, there is strong opposition to proposed generating facilities. The Cape Wind project, a large wind energy facility proposed for the waters off Martha's Vineyard, has been the target of fierce opposition from well-known and well-heeled political opponents.
