General Chemical admits....

President Michael Persico admitted yesterday that the company made a mistake in pumping hazardous water from their building in the environment and said, "it's a violation, but we're going to address it and fix it".

I wonder how many more mistakes can that neighborhood take before it's capped like Nyanza? I also wonder when Sherborn is going to look into this and demand action from Framingham and General Chemical. Could make the SMOC lawsuit look trivial if the appropriate action is now dealt with soon..

Green up Day in Framingham

While I certainly support any efforts to clean up our neighborhoods I will say that with cut backs the Town can't afford to travel around Town to pick up bags of trash, as they once did years ago. Now, you go to the places below, pick up bags and deliver the filled bags back to the location you got the bags from. I'm not sure who is willing to shuttle bags of trash in their sub compact cars these days.

I will spend a few hours picking up trash, segregating the recyclable materials and put them out for the regular trash pick up at my home.
