Selectmen oppose Holbrook trash plan

Avon selectmen want their state legislative delegation to help fight a proposed trash transfer station in Holbrook, according to Town Administrator Michael McCue. Randolph officials also oppose the project, which would be run privately on town-owned land. “We will fight any project that compromises the quality of life for Avon residents by allowing the State to continue dictating the use of Avon roads as the approved truck routes for trash transfer stations in neighboring communities,” Frank Hegarty, chairman of the Avon selectmen, said in an e-mail. The board has invited local legislators and Avon residents to attend its meeting Thursday to hear concerns, which focus on potential problems with increased truck traffic, exhaust, noise, and trash falling from vehicles, McCue said.
