WHELAN: With Crisis, We See World, And Dump, With Fresh Eyes
LETTER from M.A. WHELAN

With Crisis, We See World,

And Dump, With Fresh Eyes

To the Editor:

Given our current situation, I find even a trip to the Northern Transfer Station – aka The Dump – an exciting occasion. I have looked at it with fresh eyes. And it’s not a pretty sight.

OK, I know it’s a dump, but there are dumps and then there are dumps. This one is really awful.
Fetid piles of trash, papers blowing everywhere, the pathetic plastic fence that is supposed to keep trash from blowing away is broken down and plastic blows over it anyway, into the field and trees below.

Mr. Casella, who has got his customers doing the sorting for him as far as possible, should be ashamed of himself.

Might we have a response?  And, perhaps, a clean-up?

M.A. WHELAN, M.D.
Cooperstown

IT’S BACK! Northern Transfer Station Reopens At 7, Ending Many’s Trek To Exeter

IT’S BACK!

Northern Transfer Station Reopens,

Ending Many’s Trek To Schuyler Lake

The Northern Transfer Station on Route 28 north of Cooperstown, newly paved and with a new weigh station placed to optimize traffic flow, reopened at 7 a.m. today after a six-week hiatus, ending many Cooperstonians’ round-trip treks to Schuyler Lake. Scott Ubner, top photo, was the first commercial customer. Lower right, the first customer overall, arriving at 7 sharp, was Rose Craine of Hartwick, assisted by county Planning Director Karen Sullivan, whose office oversaw the upgrades. The Casella team, lower left, was ready for her: Matt O’Hanley of Summit, and Renee Graham and Jade Safford, both of Otego. Graham said the temporary site in the Town of Exeter handled about 70 bags a day.  (Jim Kevlin/AllOTSEGO.com)
