Ownership of an Erie County parcel on River Road has been transferred to the Town of Tonawanda, for use as a compost site.
The brownfield land at 4111 River Road will take leaves, branches and other yard debris from residents of the town and surrounding communities. The transfer was approved with an Erie County Legislature resolution in October; no money was exchanged.
The property was once a junkyard, which became the county’s land following foreclosure. The state, town and National Grid partially cleaned up contaminants, and the town will now complete its remediation.
The town will also use the site to store equipment.
