Staff of the New York State Department of Public Service have requested revisions to Circular EnerG’s Public Involvement Program Plan for their Article 10 application on their proposal to build the state’s largest trash incinerator facility in the Finger Lakes.
In a letter released Thursday, public service staff requested the developer revise several aspects of the plan, most notably explain how it will overcome local zoning laws, describe the impact on the wine and tourism economies and describe the source of the garbage. Circular enerG, a start-up based in Rochester, submitted its Article 10 application for its proposal to build the trash incinerator facility at the Seneca Army Depot in Romulus last month. This was following fierce local opposition that forced it to withdraw its local special permit application from the Town of Romulus Zoning Board.
If approved, the facility would transport over 25-HUNDRED tons of trash by truck and rail from across the state daily for burning.
