East-coast'ers found a dumping ground in Mid-Michigan?

A proposed buyer of a mid-michigan landfill plans to bring in 200 to 500 
tons of waste annually via rail to the little berg of Orleans in Ionia 
county.

Is this large as far as landfills go? Are they (this size) dangerous to 
the local ecosystems, watershed, and aquifers? A 300 acre lake, the Flat 
River State Game Area is just across the street.

A chicken CAFO was recently stopped, now this. Thanks for any experience 
or input.
