A public hearing has been held about a proposed Waste Transfer Station for Plumtrees Road in Danbury. Joseph Putnam and MSW LLC has tentative approval from the state for the 800 ton per day facility.
Danbury City Councilman Tom Saadi and some 200 residents signed a petition prompting the Department of Energy and Environmental Protection to hold the hearing, which will be continued June 3rd in Hartford.
The facility will process up to 800 tons per day of waste including municipal solid waste, construction and demolition debris, recyclables and yard waste. Concerns about noise, traffic, vibrations, lighting and odor were among the concerns cited at the hearing.
