Frederica trash plan still opposed
Traffic safety, odor concerns raised 

News Journal (DE)
July 25, 2004

A plan to put a garbage transfer station on seven acres near Frederica
may be tweaked to provide for better truck traffic flow, but opponents
said it won't make a nickel's worth of difference. 

"That will not satisfy us," said Faye E. Yonker, who lives near the
proposed site on Milford Neck Road. "It's still going to present a
dangerous situation" along Del. 1. 

Kent County Levy Court will hold a public hearing on the plan Tuesday
night, and county officials and opponents predict a repeat of the
overflow crowd when the county's Regional Planning Commission voted
unanimously July 8 to issue an unfavorable recommendation. 

Despite that recommendation, the project still is very much alive,
largely because state and county officials view it as an important step
in protecting Dover Air Force Base as federal officials choose military
bases to close next year. 


Eastern Shore Environmental wants to move its transfer station from
Postles Corner Road near Dover Air Force Base to the Milford Neck Road
site. The Air Force contends that the garbage handled by the facility
attracts birds that pose a hazard to planes landing and taking off from
the base.
