Some Susquehanna Township residents are unhappy with a proposed waste center. They spoke out at last evening's Board of Commissioner's meeting.
The City of Harrisburg has submitted an application to the DEP to allow a Yard Waste and Organics Recycling Facility at 1850 Stanley Road in Susquehanna Township.
The property is owned by Harrisburg School District and is located east of Capitol Region Water offices and treatment facilities.
According to the township's website, the city says they will use just under five acres for the site and it will be open to city public work crews, local landscapers and residents.
When open, materials such as leaves, grass, brush, tree trimmings and shrubs, and downed trees will be accepted.
The site will also be designed to recycle food scraps and similar organics from Harrisburg School District properties.
According to the township's website, the area will be gated and staffed when open to the public.
