In an emotionally charged meeting at the Five Towns community Center residents from Inwood came out to vent their frustrations towards NY Recyling & Materials; a concrete "crushing" plant located at the end of Roger Ave. Some resident complaints were late working hours, noise "pollution", sewage run-off into Jamaica Bay, dust blowing due to no sprinkler usage. Since no Town officials were able to attend the meeting and no owners of the company were in attendance the "outlash" and frustrations were vented toward the representatives of the DEC who were in attendance. The DEC assured the community they would do everything in their power to help enforce the rules set forth on the permit they issued. Another meeting is being planned where Town Officials are expected to attend and hopes that owners of the facility too will attend so together all can agree on how to be "good neighbors".
