Officials still waiting on rubble cleanup; Edgeco expected to return by middle of week

I t’s still a waiting game to see when contractors from Edgeco Environmental, Inc., will return to Granville to finish the work they started.

The company hired to clean up the pile of rubble on Main Street took their first load to an asbestos processing facility near Rochester several weeks ago and did not return days later as expected. Last week, company officials told John Winn, an attorney representing one of the former buildings’ owners, there was a vehicle permit issue delaying cleanup.

This week, Mayor Brian LaRose spoke with Edgeco officials, who said they would be back this Tuesday or Wednesday to resume clearing the debris.

“I’ve been in communication with them. They’ve been pretty good exchanging information and letting me know what’s going on,” LaRose said Tuesday. “My expectation is things will proceed either today or tomorrow. At this point we just have to take that sit and wait stance.”

He said he would be in touch with the company if workers don’t show up when they are expected. The pile has been in place since Nov. 12, and Edgeco has been promising to complete the job for a few months at this point.
