“On Tuesday July 21st, I will be testifying on behalf of my bill, House Bill 768, An Act relative to waste removal plans for transfer stations. This bill, if, ultimately, enacted by the State Legislature and signed into law by Governor Baker, will require that the applicant for a proposed transfer station shall prepare and submit both an environmental impact report and a waste removal plan.”
This bill… will require that the applicant for a proposed transfer station shall prepare and submit both an environmental impact report and a waste removal plan.
“Once submitted, the environmental impact report and waste removal plan must be both reviewed and approved by the secretary of Energy and Environmental Affairs. Unless and until, such legal requirements are complied with, a waste transfer station application cannot be approved.
As you are aware, the legislative committee process is a public exercise. If you are interested in participating in this public hearing, which will address HB 768, I would, strongly, encourage you to attend this hearing. It will occur on Tuesday, July 21st, at 1:30. It will take place in room B-2 in the State House.”
