Company wants to transport sewer sludge from NYC to Wayne County

The Finger Lakes could be home to a new sewer sludge composting facility.

The waste would be transported in from New York City, and processed at a facility on Route 89 in the town of Butler.

The Finger Lakes times reports that Tully Environmental, of Flushing, New York is planning a facility. It would be used to process waste from New York City, according to their reporting.

Nearby residents have brought up a number of environmental concerns. The region is already home to two of the largest operating landfills in Upstate New York.

The Butler Town Board will consider the proposal at next month’s meeting.
