Romulus residents up in arms over proposed trash incinerator on Seneca Lake

Posted: Updated:

ROMULUS, N.Y. (WENY) -- The town of Romulus is up in arms after a proposed idea of having a trash incinerator on the former Seneca Army Depot. 

Residents packed the town Romulus's regular board meeting tonight to voice their opinions about the three hundred and sixty-five million dollar waste to energy plant.

The meeting was not a public hearing, but the board did listen to a few questions from the public and even went through the process the project needs to go through. 

Romulus residents believe the project is not safe and are calling for it to be stopped. 

"There's just so much environmental harm and impairment to our community with the wineries and the agriculture," said Romulus resident, Maryann Kowalski. "It's just a bad idea and it's not just a bad idea for Romulus, it's a bad idea everywhere. The more I research the whole issue of trash incineration, it's not a healthy way of handling trash."

The town's attorney says the project is in the beginning stages and could take upwards to a year before anything comes of it. 

There will be an information session about the trash incinerator at three o'clock on January seventh at the Romulus Central School Auditorium.
