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
