Seneca Lake Guardian highlights waste facility

SCHUYLER COUNTY--Seneca Lake Guardian (SLG), a not-for-profit corporation dedicated to preserving and protecting the health of the Finger Lakes, recently publicized a proposal for a garbage transfer facility in Schuyler County. The New York State Department of Environmental Conservation lists the completed application for the project with a date of Sept. 9. A public comment period is currently underway and concludes on Sept. 24.
The lake group focused on the project because they say the development could negatively impact the region and lakes due to truck traffic, air, noise, light and water pollution along with odors and vermin.
The permit application with the state says, "The applicant, Bob Mente, proposes to build a 10,575 square foot materials recovery facility that would accept municipal solid waste (MSW), construction and demolition debris (C&D) and source-separated recyclables, with a maximum daily throughput of 500 tons per day. The facility will include waste storage areas, a truck weighing scale, trailer staging area and an onsite wastewater storage tank, and a building for handling and storage of waste materials that will also have areas for office space."

Comments on the project must be submitted in writing to Guillermo R Saar, NYSDEC Region 8 Headquarters, 6274 E Avon-Lima Rd., Avon, NY 14414 or
