Only 'self-serving action going on' is by S&H
In response to the article in last weeks Lake Oswego Review regarding mining at the site across the street for the current S&H Logging (along with comments by S&H Compliance Director Will Gehr):
There is more left than just mining, Mr. Gehr:
The only self-serving action going on is that by S&H who are willing to put the school children and teachers at risk, contaminate the water table and the Tualatin River system, create a noise nuisance for all surrounding properties and significantly impact traffic in the area.
One only needs to look at the long history of county notices of infractions and neighbor complaints to know that this is not a friendly neighbor, just the neighborhood bully acting up again. Just ask Mr. Gehr to bring forth any supporting neighbors, teachers, PSTAs, etc. (nor from what we understand even the state association that represents recycling and composting industry) and my guess is that he would be hard pressed to find one.
Yes, there needs to be composting and the ability to keep this type of material out of our waste system. There are other operators and operations that seem to do a better job at being a good neighbor. Maybe we neighbors should be supporting and taking our yard debris to some other recycle location.
