Successful Defense of Permits for Metal Recycling Facility

We successfully represented Berwick Iron & Metal Recycling in obtaining the necessary environmental and land use permits to allow construction and operation of an automobile shredder, the first large industrial metal shredder in the State of Maine. The permits included the necessary air emissions and waste facility processing permits from the Maine Department of Environmental Protection, and the necessary land use permits from the Town of Berwick Planning Board. We successfully defended the DEP permits before the Maine Board of Environmental Protection, and we successfully defended the Planning Board permits before the Maine courts.
