Find out just what a Solid Waste Transfer Station isGroot Industries will hold a Public Informational meeting on Saturday, February 16 from 9:00 to 11:30 a.m in Park School’s multipurpose room, 400 W. Townline Road, Round Lake, IL 60073.
The discussion will center around Groot Industries proposed plan to build a solid waste transfer station at the corner of Porter and Route 120. It will include site plans and operational reviews.
I had reported on this back on November 14th in an article about the Demolition and Debris site they plan to build on the NW corner. In that article I wrote:
I mentioned earlier to remember the 80+ truck traffic entering and exiting Rt. 120 at Porter Drive. Representative Cole brought along a copy of Groot Industries “Notice of Intent” to build a non-hazardous waste transfer station across the street from the Debris site (3.9 acres on the NE corner of Rt. 120 and Porter Drive) which would temporarily store, consolidate, and further transfer general municipal, commercial, and industrial waste. The copy I have has a handwritten date of 11-9-12 on it so it may be very current information that few know anything about. Groot will be filing a “Request for Site Approval” with the Village of Round Lake Park on November 30, 2012. The application will be available for inspection after that date at the RLP village hall. RLP must hold at least one public hearing no sooner than 90 days nor later than 120 days from the date of receipt of the “Request”. At that time questions will be allowed from the public. Just think of the amount of truck traffic these two sites will generate for an already overloaded Route 120
Concerned residents should plan on attending this meeting to find out more about what it will entail.
