Railroad Company Sued Over Open-Air Waste Stations

Environmental advocacy groups are suing New York Susquehanna & Western Railway Corp., accusing the company of violating a federal law that prevents solid waste facilities from dumping waste into open-air stations without an enclosed building and ways to prevent waste discharge. While railroad officials claim that there is no waste disposal at the sites, environmental groups say that the company dumps waste on exposed ground and asphalt pads and creates various environmental and health hazards, according to a report published by the North Jersey Media Group.

The environmental groups filed the lawsuit after the railroad did not abide by a 90-day notice to clean up the site. According to the report, the railroad company was fined $2.5 million from the state Department of Environmental Protection in July for environmental violations at the waste stations.

WCA Waste Completes Two Acquisitions

Houston-based WCA Waste Corp. announced today the completion of two acquisitions. The company purchased the assets of Sarasota, Fla.-based Andy’s Hauling. The operation’s collections will be internalized in the company’s Arcadia, Fla., landfill.

In a separate transaction, WCA Waste acquired certain assets of Pendergrass Refuse, including three rear-load trucks. The waste collected from those operations will be sent to the company’s Black Oak Landfill near Springfield, Mo.

Company Chairman Tom Fatjo says that WCA Waste has more than doubled in size during the last 16 months. With these two acquisitions, the company estimates that it has $129 million in annualized revenue.

San Diego Passes C&D Recycling Ordinance

The San Diego City Council has passed a construction and demolition (C&D) debris diversion ordinance in an effort to extend the life of the city’s Miramar Landfill and to help the city meet state recycling mandates. The ordinance, expected to go into effect next summer, will require applicants for building and demolition permits to pay a deposit based on their project’s square footage. After showing documentation of proper materials recycling, contractors can get a whole or partial refund.

The city’s Environmental Service Department says that most of the 400,000 tons of C&D materials accepted each year at the Miramar Landfill are recyclable. The city diverts only 45 percent of total waste from the landfill.
