Seneca Meadows is trying to make up for lost time — 13 days of construction work, that is.
The landfill is building a new, 15-acre disposal cell on the west side of its Salcman Road property. The land is in an area already permitted for solid-waste disposal.
Seneca Meadows District Manager Kyle Black told the Town Board Tuesday construction is behind schedule due to the wet summer weather. To catch up, Black said, the state Department of Environmental Conservation has OK’d allowing a second shift of 10 p.m. to 6 a.m. for construction work.
Kubricky Construction Corp. of Wilton, Saratoga County, is handling the construction work.
“We estimate we only have air space to handle waste on the east side until May. That’s why we started this new cell his year,” Black told the board. “If it looks like we can’t get the cell done in time, we’d have to consider cutting back on the volume of trash we accept.”
