Recycler promises Lindenhurst neighbors less dust, noise
A Lindenhurst Village recycling company is making changes to its operations, promising neighbors less dust and noise.
One World Recycling Inc. processes construction and demolition debris at its facility on North Queens Avenue. At a village board meeting earlier this week, the company made a presentation to the board about changes it plans to make after concerns were raised by the state Department of Environmental Conservation following an inspection of the site.
One World currently has one enclosed structure to process the debris, which is then transported through an open area to another enclosed structure where it is loaded onto rail cars, said Marty Sternberg, comptroller for the company.
“The DEC would like the building extended over the area that’s now in the open,” Sternberg said. “This is going to make life easier for the DEC, for One World and for the residents.”
The result will be an entirely enclosed operation, he said, meaning less dust and noise, something neighbors have complained about in the past. The company will also begin taking in debris that has already gone through a recycling process, with fewer — but larger — trucks coming to the facility, he said.
One World’s new building must be approved by the village planning board, Mayor Thomas Brennan said, and a public hearing will be held.
