Truck traffic in Tinton Falls causes residents to petition local waste company

The truck traffic on Wayside Road in Tinton Falls is causing residents to sign a petition to stop the Marpal Disposal company from expanding.

People who live in and around Tinton Falls say the disposal trucks cause traffic, noise and unsafe roads. Some residents say if Marpal is allowed to increase their intake to 800 tons, the roads will become more dangerous.

Marpal's general manager says there is no additional truck traffic. He says haulers currently take Tinton Falls roads to get to the Monmouth County Landfill, which is a few miles away.

The county's Solid Waste Advisory Council will meet on September 9 to consider Marpal's request to expand.
