Produced by many contributors.

Community groups, along with NYS Assembly member John McDonald, held a news conference Friday, January 21 in front of the Department of Environmental Conservation office in Albany. They urged the DEC to immediately require the Norlite hazardous waste incinerator to stop mixing toxic ash into its aggregate product, which Norlite sells to the construction industry. Changes made by DEC to Norlite’s exemptions under the Resource Conservation and Recovery Act (RCRA) prohibit such use of the toxic ash. Mark Dunlea from WOOC hears from Joe Ritchie, a local resident living across the street from the facility; Assemblymember John McDonald; and Dave Publow.
