Controversial Croton waste transfer station may be forced to shut down
After a long-running fight, a controversial Croton waste transfer station may be forced to shut down.
The Village of Croton and Metro Enviro, the trash hauling company, have been fighting for years over how much and what kind of waste could be brought to the station. Last fall, the village pulled out of talks with the company. In a ruling Wednesday, the New York State of Appeals upheld a lower court?s decision charging Metro Enviro had repeatedly violated village permits.
Croton Mayor Greg Schmidt says the village is thrilled it won the $600,000 fight against Metro Enviro. The Village Board will meet with the company?s attorney Monday to decide what the next step will be.
