Posted on December 1, 2011 |
By John Flowers



MIDDLEBURY — New England Quality Service LLC (NEQS) is seeking zoning permission to acquire a large metal shredding device for use at its Wyre Wheel location at 4079 Route 7 south.

The shredder, according to company officials, will allow NEQS to recycle metal debris — including cars and washing machines — more quickly and efficiently.

Neighbors, meanwhile, told the Middlebury Development Review Board (DRB) on Monday that they want to make sure the new equipment doesn’t bring more noise and traffic to the area.

By John Flowers



MIDDLEBURY — The Addison County Solid Waste Management District (ACSWMD) board has approved a 2012 budget of $2,576,552 that reflects a 7-percent increase in expenses, but maintains a level fee for trash disposal and reduces the drop-off charges for some recyclables at the transfer station.

Theresa Kuczynski, manager of the ACSWMD, said the budget increase is based on the assumption the transfer station will handle an increasing amount of trash, demolition debris and recyclables next year.

MIDDLEBURY — The Middlebury selectboard on Dec. 6 will begin paring back the first draft of a 2012-2013 municipal budget that would require a 3.4-cent increase in the local tax rate in order to maintain existing services and capital improvement priorities.

The draft $8,504,690 spending plan, reviewed by the selectboard for the first time at a meeting last Tuesday, represents a $230,825 increase compared to this year’s municipal budget. One penny on Middlebury’s tax rate raises roughly $72,000.
