The Riverside Press Enterprise reports:

The developer of what would have been the world’s largest trash dump, in the desert east of Joshua Tree National Park, has filed bankruptcy, it was announced Monday.


Donna and Larry Charpied also sent a note to their supporters that includes this cautionary note:

We MUST now be diligent. We need to pressure Secretary Salazar to once and for all restore the ole Kaiser mine, as well as the other approximately 24,000 acres of land in the Eagle Mountains back to Joshua Tree National Park, where it originated. The Give It Back! Campaign is designed to restore the 29,755 acres.
