Property owners near the area of 1655 Powis Road received an official mailed Notice of Intent (NOI) stating that Lakeshore Recycling Systems, LLC (LRS) would be filing a formal application and proposal on Friday, September 16, 2022 with the City that would request approval to construct and operate a solid waste transfer station facility at the site of 1655 Powis Road.
The Illinois Environmental Protection Act dictates the process for the development of a waste transfer station in a municipality, as well as the rights and responsibilities of each party’s role in the process. The City’s sole role in the process is to review the application and consider testimony at the required public hearing to decide if it meets the criteria set by State Statute. The City Council cannot simply say that it doesn’t want a second solid waste transfer station.
The City has provided detailed information regarding the transfer station review process and encourages residents to review that content for more information about the City’s role in the transfer station review process.
