RAYNHAM, MA-The owner of a waste management firm has filed plans to develop a 400-ton per day transfer station at the Raynham-Taunton Greyhound Park. This comes just weeks after the town rejected his plans for a larger facility.

Christopher Carney, owner of American Waste Services whose family also owns and operates the 200-acre dog racing track, says he will also appeal the town’s decision to limit the transfer station’s size in Superior Court. Carney originally wanted to build a 1,000-ton per day facility.

Town selectmen turned down Carney’s initial $3-million transfer station plan in February based on concerns over increased traffic, air quality and noise issues. John Donahue, chairman of the selectmen and the Board of Health, tells GlobeSt.com that the board believes there are already enough regional transfer stations in the area to handle the town’s needs. After revisions, the new plan will go back to the town for review.
