SALT LAKE CITY -- Environmental activist Erin Brockovich has signed on to the cause of some Utahns in North Salt Lake.

The activists said they want the incinerator of Stericycle, the company that disposes of waste from hospitals, shut down.

The Stericycle incinerator is located at 90 North and 1100 West.

Some residents said their children are exposed to dangerous pollution from the incinerator. They held a protest Thursday night in an effort to get their voices heard.
