Continue reading below

A trash transfer station in the city’s inner belt area will be demolished this summer, Mayor Joseph Curtatone said last week. Waste Management Inc. operates the facility at 10 Poplar St., but its lease expires at the end of this month. Curtatone said removing the transfer station, which can be seen by Interstate 93 traffic, would help enhance the city’s image and open the area to new development. It is expected to be demolished in August, at a cost of about $500,000 to the city.
