Residents and Sustainability Groups Voice Support for the SMM Compost Facility at Cortlandt Public Hearing

On July 10th, the Town of Cortlandt Planning Board took public comments regarding the proposed site plans for the Sustainable Materials Management, Inc. Compost Facility.

Many residents, sustainability organizers, and compost advocates showed up to voice their support for the compost facility and urged members of Planning Board to pass a resolution approving the site plans.

The Planning Board members reaffirmed their support for the sustainable ideology behind composting, while also reminding the room that it is their job to thoroughly evaluate the implications of this facility. They specifically voiced concerns about traffic, and residents leaving food scraps outside the designated drop-off area.

The Planning Board voted to extend the public hearing and have a draft resolution prepared for the next Planning Board meeting on August 28th.
