CARROLL C&D MANAGEMENT FACILITY
Welcome to the Carroll C&D Management Facility community website. Here you will find updated information regarding the project, as well as informational resources and media releases.
Recently in Sealands' quest to reopen and expand the landfill and recycling services previously offered by Jones-Carroll, Inc. at their Dodge Road site in the Town of Carroll, two important milestones have been achieved.
The NYSDEC will issue Sealand their permits for the expansion.
The NYSDEC is granting Sealand the permits for the expansion of the landfill and recycling facility and they have released the FINAL ENVIRONMENTAL IMPACT STATEMENT.
Read the FINAL ENVIRONMENTAL IMPACT STATEMENT on the Information/Application Documents page to see the answers to all the questions, comments and concerns that were written in during the public review period or recorded at the February 7, 2018 public hearing.
Also see the FACT CHECKER PAGE to understand how the opposition manipulates information, and to help weed through the fakery and propaganda that is continually pushed on the public regarding Sealand's integrity and the safety of the facility.
2. The Court ruled in favor of Jones-Carroll or Sealand and the long awaited trial is next.
Once again Town residents are being told less than half the truth by the Town board and the CCC leaders.
Obviously, Sealand understood since 2015 that the three remaining claims had not been dismissed, and that the community was being falsely advised to the contrary. On November 8, 2019 the Appellate Division, Fourth Judicial Department explicitly trashed the Town’s core argument that the three remaining claims had been finally determined. As the Court stated, “that contention lacks merit” and “that position did not prevail”.
On November 8, 2019 the Fourth Department specifically confirmed Sealand’s Third Cause of Action that the “2007 Law is unreasonable, arbitrary and capricious,” and reinstated Sealands' substantiated claim of ethical violations by the Town board.
While the November 8, 2019 decision dismissed Sealand’s claims for a regulatory taking and substantive due process violation because Sealand does not own the property, Jones-Carroll's vested property interest has been confirmed by the highest court in New York State. So, the regulatory taking and due process violation claim against the Town remains.
Therefore, all of Jones-Carroll's claims will go to trial, along with Sealand’s Third Cause of Action, including the claim that a Town board member had a conflict of interest and committed an act of official misconduct.
On November 12 completely factual information regarding the issuance of the NYSDEC permits for the landfill and recycling center, and the upcoming trial on the validity of the 2007 Waste Disposal Law was posted by an employee of Daigler Engineering, PC at a number of locations in Frewsburg and Falconer.
This poster was only placed after requesting and receiving approval from the business/institution representative where it was displayed. The purpose of the poster was to accurately inform local residents about the permit issuance and the upcoming trial. This is information they would not otherwise have available to them. Of course the reaction from the main critic was quite predictably inaccurate and self serving, it read as follows:
"PLEASE IGNORE THESE FLYERS AS THEY ARE IN NO WAY FACTUAL AND ARE DESIGNED AND INTENDED TO HARASS, INTIMIDATE AND ALARM THE CITIZENS OF THE TOWN OF CARROLL."
In providing this completely factual information in these approved locations, Sealand Waste was likened to a venereal disease. A call was made to “send somebody around town to take them down”, in an attempt to prevent public access to Sealand's side of the story and disregarding the decision by those individuals who allowed the poster to be hung. In the true form of a vulgar authoritarian despot, a call was made to “arrest that pos for littering now"

THE NOVEMBER 12 POSTER
WORD OF MOUTH
TWO REALLY BIG DEVELOPMENTS
"We are sincerely looking forward to working with and being a part of this community.”
"The voice of the community is important. We understand concerns need to be addressed and expectations need to be met."
"I am not opposed to the landfill because it will bring opportunity and much needed revenue for development of Frewsburg and the Town, but I feel uneasy saying so in public because I have seen what has happend to those who speak in favor of it "
