Look for service to Frostbridge roughly 1x week on Thursdays. They are looking to ship 8-12 cars weekly.

Among other things, the state wants to ramp up construction debris recycling, so the future looks good for more facilities like at Frostbridge.

According to the plan, the state must achieve a 10 percent reduction in municipal solid waste, and boost the statewide recycling rate from 35 percent 45 percent. At this time, Connecticut recycles 1.25 million tons of municipal solid waste annually.

The state produces nearly 1 million tons of construction and demolition debris each year. The DEEP plan says the state must also significantly increase the recycling of these materials.

While true, the material that goes out on rail is 100% the waste. So if these placed capture more recyclables, in theory, it means less rail traffic.

And had been interchanged about 30 hours before the fire started.

Fire was out in 20 mins, and train was inspected and continued to East Deerfield. If the train had stopped anywhere other than right next to a TV station, in the State capitol, this would have been a non-issue.

Geez, right? Remember what happened when you guys handled that shipment of lobsters for that lady once? They made a frikkin' feature film out of that debacle.

Hmmm.... lobsters, eh? Damn broad.

Actually less waste going out does not mean less cars, because if they are recycling that much it would be worth shipping it out on rail as opposed to truck

Not really, all the commodities they are recovering are going to go by truck to local MRFs for further processing.
