Recycling companies agree to rebuild damaged wetlands

Two recycling companies will restore wetlands they damaged near their 17-acre property on Main Street, according to a judgment recorded this month in Suffolk Superior Court. Allied Recycling Center Inc. and Recycling Walpole LLC also agreed to pay $125,000 in fines and to properly handle waste at the site in the future, according to a press release from the state attorney general’s office. “The allegations paint a very disturbing picture of flagrant violations of environmental laws meant to protect natural resources and the public’s health,” Attorney General Martha Coakley said in 2010, when her agency filed its complaint. The companies — which had been breaking environmental wetland rules since 1988 — agreed to restore about an acre and a half of wetlands and 176 linear feet of a stream, primarily on town-owned conservation land, the press release said.
