There is a Public Hearing tomorrow, Tuesday at 7PM at City Hall during the Planning Board meeting concerning a large Recycling Plant moving to Beacon.
According to the concerned citizen who emailed me:
"It wants to locate at the Westage Industrial site on Hwy 52, which is across from Chemprene. This will be a Regional recycling plant that will draw traffic from as far away as CT, Westchester, and perhaps even the Albany area.
It is projected to have up to 70 or 74 trucks per day entering and leaving the facility. These will be large trucks; like trash trucks, and tractor trailers.
I think that is a lot of heavy traffic on Hwy 52, which of course is one of Beacon’s three entrances. I’m also concerned about possible traffic accidents over a period of time, as like I say – these are heavy trucks. Note: they have said that they will be minimum wage as far as hires."
