Taylor Garbage to use Broome County Landfill temporarily after fire

TOWN OF MAINE (WBNG) -- Wednesday morning, Broome County Executive Jason Garner announced Taylor Garbage will start taking their recycling to the Broome County landfill on Knapp Road.

The announcement follows the massive fire that occurred at the company's recycling plant in Apalachin in early January.

Garner says the move is temporary and intended to give Taylor Garbage time to rebuild the facility.

Once at the Landfill, the items to be recycled will be taken to a material recycling facility, Garners' office says. The landfill will be taking the recyclables on Feb. 3.

Stephen Donnelly and Associates, a firm representing Taylor Garbage, told 12 News that the the company is looking into technology that will detect lithium ion batteries.

Fire officials in Apalachin say they believe lithium ion batteries caused the fire.

12 News will have more coverage of this story in its 6 p.m. newscast.
