well, we can see now where Tooele stacks up in the minds of the legislature
"[Hughes said] Stericycle arrived at its current location in 1988, built
their facility in a remote part of North Salt Lake," he said. "They
enjoyed some anonymity in that spot until we saw some residents move close
by."This sounds like Stericycle moved into the boonies. In fact
it was constructed hard by North Salt Lake's industrial park. There was
wide-ranging opposition to Stericycle's facility; some firms in the
industrial park opposed it, and many residents opposed it. I was one of
them.I've always wondered just how Stericycle won the approval
of North Salt Lake. I suspect some palms were greased, such is the life of a
small town in Utah.
I've been told that burning it is old technology, and there are better ways
to get rid of it. I guess burning must be cheaper.
Tooele County Elected officials didn't even inform residents. It's
location is too close to Tooele County and the Wasatch Front. Nerve agent was
under extremely strict regulations. This will be self reported if there is
violations and they are already being investigated for that. Homes around the
current location have initial findings of high dioxins. Dioxins can travel up to
300 miles. But elected officials believe 20 give or take a few miles north west
of Grantsville is ok. Thanks for listening to business instead of your
constituents elected officials.
