Cross post from HatCityBLOG

After the state Department of Energy and Environmental Protection gave their stamp of approval towards a proposed solid waste transfer station on Plumtress Road, State Rep. David Arconti and City Councilman Tom Saadi issued the following statement:

Rep. Arconti:

“I was disheartened to hear about the preliminary DEEP recommendation for this solid waste facility that would affect the quality of life for so many residents. Among the many issues is the overwhelming traffic necessary to process 800 tons of waste per day. Since day one I have been against locating it in such close proximity to a residential neighborhood. I will continue to do so and will closely monitor all related decisions.”

Councilman Saadi:

“While I am disappointed with DEEP’s decision, I intend to continue the fight, along with Rep. David Arconti and the City of Danbury, against this ill-conceived and onerous proposal which is bad not only for the local neighborhood but the City as a whole.”
