9/12/2019 3:34:00 PM Suspended waste hauler
license reinstatement agreed to
Chisago County and local garbage hauler Terry Flor have signed an agreement that allows Terry’s Disposal to continue hauling. The Press reported the environmental services department had suspended Terry’s Disposal license as of September 2; due to prohibited materials accumulating at the operation’s base in rural North Branch.
Terry Flor was scheduled for a court hearing this week on a citation issued late in 2018 regarding non-compliance with his permit for his recycling processing. His hauling operation was unaffected by that ticket, but he had to agree to not continue collecting prohibited materials. A few weeks ago it became apparent, according to Chisago County Zoning and Environmental Services Director Kurt Schneider, that the earlier compromise agreement wasn’t being followed. The county issued a notice of suspending the hauling August 26.
Flor and the county in the meantime agreed to stay that notice of suspension based on several conditions.
Flor will provide written confirmation that SRC Inc. (based in Wyoming) will remove recyclables from Flor’s business site-- to the East Central Regional Waste Commission Cambridge transfer site for proper disposal. The owner of SRC must declare that she is cooperating by providing rolloff vehicles for the recyclables relocation.
The ECSWC Director must also must give written proof the Terry’s Disposal materials are acceptable at the Cambridge Transfer Station and there is authorization for Flor to place a rolloff delivered by SRC there.
Gustafson Excavating must provide a statement that it will transport the rolloff to a recycling facility in Blaine pre-approved.
The recycling facility will give the county written confirmation recyclables are being accepted on a “cash basis”
Terry’s Disposal licensee must from now, forward, provide weigh tickets from the Blaine facility to prove delivery of the materials for proper recycling and disposal.
As has always been the case-- the tires and appliances, electronics and mattresses at the rural North Branch site must be abated and no longer collected by Terry’s Disposal.
These conditions must be completed or in effect by November 30, 2019. If all written verifications and other measures are adhered to, they will “...adequately address and correct violations giving rise to the License Suspension,” the agreement states.
