From Sandy Smith to Ben Oostdam, etc.
W.VA did their work and now WE MUST do OURS tomorrow evening at the PA DEP hearing for Mascaro's permit renewal. PLEASE contact your local and anyone else's news to get 'em there. The following are a few very important
My figures have been taken off the PA DEP Mascaro/A&M Composting files in Harrisburg about three weeks ago.
average FOURTEEN (14) trucks daily haul 322 TONS of NYC Sludge into Manheim.
If they ONLY haul for FIVE(see NOTE) days a week, Mascaro receives 1,610 TONS per week
month and min. of 83,720 TONS of sludge for the year.
MANHEIM's A&M COMPOSTING IS RECEIVING JUST ABOUT THE SAME AMOUNT OF DAILY,MONTHLY AND YEARLY SLUDGE AS HE LARGEST SLUDGE DUMP IN SIERRA BLANCA,TX that just shut down!!!!!!!!!!!!
TEXAS daily avg 250-400 tons
Manheim daily avg.322
Outside of NYC, Mascaro has current sludge management contracts
for 101,738 TONS of sludge yearly from NY & PA going to where, I'm not sure but we should ask DEP where?!
