Lodi residents upset over new agreement with National Transfer Inc.

Lodi residents are upset about the new agreement the borough council has signed with National Transfer Inc. The agreement could allow the business to increase the amount of trash it takes in at the North Main Street site.

Residents say the noise and the smell of the site are a few of the problems in their neighborhood. Some say there has been an ongoing battle with the company since it moved its trash processing facility to Lodi approximately 26 years ago. They say every agreement National Transfer Inc. has signed, it has not followed.

The borough manager says the agreement will give Lodi more control over the company's operation, which will benefit surrounding neighborhoods. The owner of National Transfer Inc. says the agreement will save Lodi money. He says he will charge the borough $11 less per ton for its garbage handling.

Final approval for the agreement lies with the county and the state. Bergen County Utilities Authority will hold a public hearing to discuss the agreement on September 1.
