NEWARK - A company called Waste Management of New Jersey wants to build a 24,000 square foot building on the banks of the Passaic River in Newark.

The company wants to have 100 tons of medical waste trucked into its building every day. The building would be constructed along a stretch of heavily developed land in the Ironbound, and the company would knock down vacant buildings to put in the new facility.

The planned building would also go up about a quarter mile away from a housing project. When the residents of the project found out about the planned facility they were upset.

The issue is expected to go before Newark's Zoning Board next month.
