The Planning and Zoning hearing to consider the application to expand the current wood recycling permitted operation at 104 Wooster Street to also include municipal and hazardous waste will take place on Tuesday, February 11th at 7 p.m. at the Municipal Center General Purpose Room. The previous hearing in January had to be rescheduled when the overflow crowd spilled into and clogged the hallway outside the smaller meeting room the committee normally uses.
How Much Is 2,500 Cubic Yards of Municipal, Solid and Hazardous Waste?
The permit request under consideration for 104 Wooster Street allows approximately 2,500 cubic yards of solid and municipal waste, including up to 120 cubic yards of asbestos contaminated waste, according to a copy of the permit reviewed by The Bethel Community Gazette.
120 cubic yards of hazardous waste would fit in three 40 cubic yard containers, and the full 2,500 cubic yards would fill an average of sixty-three 40 yard containers.
The image above shows 1 of the 63 waste containers of the size needed to hold 2,500 cubic yards of solid and municipal waste, along with a six foot adult next to the container to put the size into scale.
The Planning and Zoning Commission is meeting Tuesday, February 11th at 7 p.m. in the General Purpose Room to consider the permit application to allow this expanded use.
