No. Many of McMullen Valley citizens and in neighboring communities such as Wickenburg, do not want the aluminum recycling smelter for a list of factually based reasons. Extensive research has been done to support these reasons and will be discussed on the pages of this website. 

Nosmelterhere.com will provide you insight into the toxic pollution this facility will produce, the health and potential lethal scenarios, environmental racism, inappropriate high-risk geographical location, environmental risks and the decline of economics to its citizens and future growth. Also, and most importantly: WHAT YOU CAN DO!
