Alternative Waste Services Plans to Move Forward Despite Proposed BanAlternative Waste Services Plans to Move Forward Despite Proposed Ban
February 1, 2015
Alternative Waste Services (AWS) announced that it will continue pursuing its plans to construct a waste transfer station. Although the town board proposed a law that would ban all solid waste management facilities -- including transfer stations -- the law included some exemptions. AWS owner Bob Mente and his wife Ashley attended the Jan. 29 special meeting of the Newfield Town Board to explain how their proposed transfer station could fit those exemptions.
One of the exemptions reads, “Any bona-fide solid waste management facility previously in existence on the effective date of this Local Law shall remain exempt under the current terms and conditions of their operating permit.”
