This may be the last chance to make a stand against the ridiculous recycling plant being pushed through by our wonderful elected officials in Beacon. They went out of their way to overrule an existing restriction against recycling plants in the area planned for it. Recycling is great, but the operation is INDUSTRIAL, involving at least 20 round trip diesel truck trips in Beacon PER HOUR! The tons, yes tons, of air pollution, not to mention noise and traffic congestion make this possibly the worst idea I've seen since I moved to Beacon 11 years ago. Diesel truck engines are probably the worst air polluters on roads. The particulate air pollution alone is reason enough to stop this. There is already a recycling center in Orange County. A location along route 9, if a new plant is even needed, would be sensable. The good things that have been done in Beacon the past ten years could be severely, negatively, affected by this operation. And you know with all things like this, the bad aspects being reported now, will pale in comparison to the reality once it gets going.
