Opposition to Waste Transfer Station

By Jeffrey B. Cohen

April 13, 2009

A proposal for a new waste transfer facility on Murphy Road is facing opposition from the Connecticut Coalition for Environmental Justice and from some on the city council.

The city council doesn't technically have a say in matters like these, but that doesn't mean it can't try for a voice. So Councilman Luis Cotto is pushing a resolution in opposition to the facility proposed by Heritage-Crystal Clean, LLC and hopes the planning and zoning commission listens.

"We definitely would like to weigh in on this and let you know that we don't want this in the interest of our residents," Cotto said, explaining his argument to the PZC.

The city says the application is still in the permitting phase. Cotto's resolution is on tonight's agenda.
