Recycling Inc. has submitted an appeal to the Connecticut Appellate Court to contest the Department of Energy and Environmental Protection’s (DEEP) decision to deny the company a permit to operate a 45,000-square-foot recycling facility at 990 Naugatuck Ave. in the Housatonic Design District.

DEEP made the final decision about the permit in February 2015, and Recycling Inc. already appealed the decision once to the Superior Court in March 2015. In January 2016, the Superior Court judge denied the company’s appeal, which prompted Recycling Inc. to file an appeal to the Appellate Court in February 2016. The Appellate Court is currently reviewing this appeal.

Recycling Inc. is seeking to operate a 45,000 square foot recycling facility on a 6.7-acre site at 990 Naugatuck Ave., which is located in the Housatonic Design District (HDD).

DEEP Deputy Commissioner Susan K. Whalen made a final decision on Feb. 5, 2015 to revoke Recycling Inc.’s general permit to operate a recycling facility in Milford, and also denied the company’s pending application to obtain an individual recycling permit. The company appealed that decision to Superior Court on March 20, 2015.
