Howell Waste Facility Project to be Discussed at SWAC Meeting

HOWELL-The future of the proposed solid waste management facility to be built on Randolph Road in Howell Township will be in the hands of the Monmouth County Solid Waste Advisory Council.

The project which could have been approved last week at Monmouth County Board of Freeholders’ meeting was dealt a blow after the board said the application was incomplete.

Many members of the Howell and Lakewood communities opposed the facility after learning about it at the 11th hour.  A watchdog group in Howell, Howell NJ Strong, found public documents that linked the project to the husband of a former Monmouth County Freeholder.

The matter now will be heard again before the Solid Waste Advisory Council.  That body will be meeting again on Thursday, September 28th at 7pm.

The meetings for the SWAC are held at the Monmouth County Reclamation Center Conference Room located at  6000 Asbury Avenue in Tinton Falls.

As of today, no agenda for the meeting was available, but the board is expected to discuss the Randolph facility.
