[NEWS 8-12-2020] BioHiTech — Dave Ellis, Rensselaer Environmental Coalition

The DEC has denied two permits to Rensselaer Resource Recovery for a proposed new BioHiTech solid waste facility in the City of Rensselaer, directly on top of a current hazardous waste site and adjacent to the Hudson River. The State Air Quality and Solid Waste Management. permits were denied after the applicant requested an immediate decision.

Rensselaer Environmental Coalition applauds DEC’s decision denying permits for BioHiTech and its operator, Rensselaer Resource Recovery LLC. The grassroots groups is urging the DEC to utilize the same scrutiny against the Dunn C&D Landfill. The landfill has been notorious for its sickening hydrogen sulfide odors, blowing debris and countless violations since it’s operations began in 2015.

In this interview we speak with Dave Ellis, Chairman of the Rensselaer Environmental Coalition. To learn more, check out the Hudson Mohawk Environmental Action Network at HMEAN.org
