NEW: DEM Poised to Shutdown Recycling Facility
Wednesday, December 14, 2011
“[n]o construction and demolition debris processing facility shall be issued a license or be able to operate unless it has (1) [r]eceived a letter of compliance from the host municipality that all applicable zoning requirements and local ordinances of the host municipality have been complied with.”
The facility has technically been in violation since the amendment was enacted in July, but the DEM wanted to provide TLA with a “reasonable amount of time” to obtain the required letter. In October, however, the City issued a “Letter of Non-Compliance” to TLA.
In light of the recent decision, the DEM has begun to move forward on plans to revoke the facility’s license. Today’s action is a very serious and unprecedented step that is necessary for DEM to take under the amended Refuse Disposal Act,” said DEM Director Janet Coit. “DEM is obligated to take this measure related to the TLA Pond View facility, which has garnered lots of attention and raised numerous concerns by East Providence residents, in order to comply with Rhode Island law.”
