Derry official says Dumpster Depot 'lied to us'
Commission member Paul Doolittle said commissioners were told that the business would be bringing back only empty Dumpsters to the proposed facility on Ashleigh Drive. But according to a condition approved as part of the plan last month by the Planning Board, the company can bring back full Dumpsters.
The decision by the Planning Board allows the business to have full Dumpsters left at the facility for 24 hours on weekdays and 36 hours on weekends.
But when Conservation Commission members approved the plan in May, there wasn’t any mention of full Dumpsters being brought back to the business, Doolittle said.
“They need to come back before us and they’re not legal,” he said after the meeting. “We can take back our approval and they need our approval.”
Abutter Brenda Wilson, who has filed an appeal with the Planning Board, presented reasons for why the business shouldn’t be allowed to come to Derry.
The plan has drawn the ire of neighbors who say the business doesn’t belong in the area and will cause noise, pollution and increase rodent and mosquito activity.
