Shredded wood going to Sidney

Waste Recovery Enterprises (WRE)of Sidney is in the process of shredding tons of trees and brush piled at the flood debris collection site on Delaware County Route 38 (Arkville Cut-Off Road). The company won the job with its bid of $48,550. The County will be reimbursed by FEMA for this expense. The material is to be chipped and shredded by November 4. Denton Reed, a WRE manager, said Johnson and Rhoades, a stone supplier from Sidney, will take the shredded wood to its stone yards to use as winter insulation for bluestone blocks which can crack if left unprotected in cold weather. Once the debris is gone from the site, the County will seed, mulch and reclaim the parcel, owned by the non-profit Water Discovery Center. Hundreds of tons of flood damaged debris from area households and businesses, which had been dumped at the Arkville site, has already been removed to a landfill in central New York.
