No Route 7 Trash Transfer Station in Joppa!
The Harford County govt., at the direction of the County Executive, purchased a 23 acre site on Rt. 7, formally referred to as “Plecker’s World of Golf,” to be converted into a trash transfer station. This proposed location is unsuitable due to the two lane access road that is already congested with local commercial and residential traffic, and the site is surrounded by residential properties. The County, working with MD Environmental Services, overpaid for the property ($2.9M) and is requesting that the County Council approve an additional $3.5M for site specific engineering. We the undersigned are concerned citizens who urge our leaders to act now to oppose this location and to identify alternative locations that are better suited (satisfactory ingress/egress, away from residential properties), for such a facility.
