Controversial WTE Facility Proposal Presentation Draws Large Crowd in Romulus, N.Y.

The $365 million plan developed by Circle EnerG proposes to transport trash via rail and truck to the facility, which would be constructed on the former Seneca Army Depot site.

Earlier this week, more than 200 people attended a presentation on a controversial waste-to-energy (WTE) facility proposal at the fire hall in the town of Romulus, N.Y. The $365 million plan developed by Circle EnerG proposes to transport trash via rail and truck to the facility, which would be constructed on the former Seneca Army Depot site.

Members of the community are concerned that the facility is too expensive and that it will harm the environment.

The Planning Board, which has declared itself as the lead agency for the environmental review process, will take its time reviewing the proposal. In addition, it will consider hiring an environmental engineering firm to assist in the environmental review process.
