State of Vermont
July 19, 2002
Early this year, Environmental Enforcement Officer Tim McNamara noticed a burning pile of debris at the transfer station. Further inspection revealed that the assorted solid waste included such things as several snow shovels, sheetrock, metal chair frames, painted wood, plastic, assorted metals and cardboard. The Town of Stratton promptly cleaned up the remaining solid waste at the burn site and disposed of it at a certified facility. After the investigation was completed the Town of Stratton was notified of these violations of the state's solid waste disposal laws and agreed to settle the matter.
The settlement was reduced to an assurance of discontinuance and was so ordered by the Environmental Court on July 17, 2002. In it, the Town of Stratton agreed to fund a $7,000 supplemental environmental project.
