Rep. Timilty requests the Commissioner of the Department of Environmental Protection to join him on a tour of the proposed transfer station location.

On Wednesday August 19th, Representative Walter F. Timilty, respectfully, requested that the Commissioner of the Department of Environmental Protection, Martin Suuberg, join him on a tour of the, proposed, location for the, ill-advised, waste-transfer station, in the Town of Holbrook. Specifically, Timilty has requested that Commissioner Suuberg participate in said tour, prior to rendering a decision on the application of the TLA-Holbrook LLC Municipal Solid Waste-Transfer Station.

In his communication to Commissioner Suuberg, Representative Timilty stated, “… It is my, unwavering, belief that the establishment of a waste-transfer station on said location in the Town of Holbrook would be an unmitigated, environmental and public-health disaster for Randolph, Holbrook, and several surrounding towns in Norfolk County. Based on these critical, quality of life issues, I, firmly, believe that a site-visit, undertaken by yourself, prior to any decision being rendered by the Department of Environmental Protection, would have a profound impact on your deliberations, regarding the waste-transfer station application. “

Below is Representative Timilty’s communication to the D.E.P. Commissioner, Martin Suuberg, urging the Commissioner to join him on a tour of the TLA-Holbrook LLC Municipal Solid Waste-Transfer Station.

——

Dear Commissioner,

Thank you for taking the time to meet with Representative Bruce J. Ayers, some of our local officials from the Town of Randolph, and myself.

I am, respectfully, requesting that you join me on a tour of the site, currently, being considered for the location of a waste-transfer station in the Town of Holbrook, prior to any decision being rendered by the Department of Environmental Protection.

This parcel of land, within the Town of Holbrook, is adjacent to what is, commonly, referred to as an “E.P.A. Super-Fund” site.

As I have expressed to you, personally, it is my, unwavering, belief that the establishment of a waste-transfer station on said location in the Town of Holbrook would be an unmitigated, environmental and public-health disaster for Randolph, Holbrook, and several surrounding towns in Norfolk County.

Based on these critical, quality of life issues, I, firmly, believe that a site-visit, undertaken by yourself, prior to any decision being rendered by the Department of Environmental Protection, would have a profound impact on your deliberations, regarding the waste-transfer station application.

Moreover, given the decaying and dilapidated infrastructure of, at least, two chemical-producing plants, on, or, adjacent to the proposed-site, it is crucial, Commissioner, that you view, first-hand, the perilous situation that the town of Randolph and surrounding towns will face, if this waste-transfer station is permitted to be established.

Given both the gravity of this situation and the limited time parameters that we are operating under, I would, greatly, appreciate your attendance on a tour of the site, being considered for the location of a waste-transfer station in the Town of Holbrook, at your earliest possible convenience.

Sincerely,

Walter Timilty

-From the Office of State Representative Walter F. Timilty
