Massachusetts DEP Says No To Transfer Station

Brockton, Mass. — The Massachusetts Department of Environmental Protection (DEP) has nixed plans for a solid-waste transfer station in Brockton that would receive up to 1,000 tons of garbage a day. Locally based Champion City Recovery proposed the facility. According to The Boston Globe, the DEP ruled against the station in part because Champion City was unable to prove that the proposed site has been used for solid-waste management in the past, which state law requires because the site is near a public drinking water source. The agency also determined that the company did not supply sufficient information about traffic safety around the site and the facility’s effect on air quality. Champion City has said it will continue to push for the facility.
