Opposition to Transfer Facility
DISTRICT POSITION OPPOSING TRANSFER (WASTE) FACILITY
11月19日, the 威尼斯电玩 教育委员会 passed a resolution rejecting Omni Recycling of 威尼斯电玩 LLC’s proposed construction and operation of a transfer facility in the community. 这个提议, if approved by the Town of Islip, would allow the construction of a solid waste facility in a low-income, predominantly minority neighborhood. This would violate the principles of environmental justice and raises several potential risks to 威尼斯电玩 residents related to health, safety and the influx of traffic in an already densely populated town. The district is taking a strong stance against this project to protect the 威尼斯电玩 community and its residents.
