Closing Of Sand Land's Solid Waste Processing Predicted To Affect Local Landscapers

By Alisha Steindecker - 27 East - 4/12/16

Landscapers preparing for the busy summer season are scrambling to find alternative places to dispose of yard debris, and also to buy high-quality mulch and topsoil, since a state court pulled the plug on Sand Land’s solid waste-processing operation in Noyac last month.

The 50-acre sand-mining operation, owned by Wainscott Sand & Gravel, can no longer be used to process “trees, brush, stumps, leaves and other clearing debris into topsoil or mulch,” according to the decision. The facility also is no longer permitted to store, sell or deliver mulch, topsoil and wood chips.

While concerned residents and environmentalists celebrate the court ruling—the site is atop an aquifer that supplies water to much of Southampton and East Hampton towns, and environmentalists say the mulching operation can pollute groundwater—some landscapers say their businesses could be in jeopardy. Town-owned waste processing facilities in Southampton and East Hampton are limited in what they can handle, and they say the elimination of a major competitor is forcing up prices at the few other private processing facilities on the South Fork.

Meanwhile, some worry about another potential result: a rapid increase in illegal dumping of yard waste, which can worsen nitrogen pollution in other areas.
