Letitia James Warns Consumers About Classified Ads Toll numbers may be a direct line to trouble. Classified ads are intended to help people by facilitating communication and advertising available services; however, some of the hotlines & service numbers in classifieds actually hurt the people who rely on them by cheating them of their hard-earned dollars. “Most newspapers print a disclaimer in their classified ad section to warn readers about numbers that are a direct line to trouble. Any number starting with 900, 540, 595 or 871 charges a fee beyond a local call. In some instances, ads initially advertise calls to a local number, but then direct callers to a second number starting with one of the paid exchanges. “Consumers must also question the legitimacy of vague classifieds because they too could be a scam. Before responding to an ad, consumers should verify the source of all information & always be wary about sending money or signing a contract with an unknown party.” Office of the Public Advocate

Zevel Transfer, LLC Proposed Change in Hours of Operation and Addition of Crusher Fact Sheet Zevel Transfer LLC (“Zevel”) seeks modification of its NYS Department of Environmental Conservation (DEC) permit to change the hours of operation and add a crusher at its 620 Truxton Street transfer station. Application ID # 2-6007-00070/00009. As part of the application process, Zevel is required to notify the public about the proposed change and give the public the opportunity to comment. The proposed change would allow Zevel to operate 12:01am Sunday through 11:59pm Friday as follows: inbound trucks: 6:00 am - 7:00pm, Sunday through Friday; outbound trucks: 12:01am Sunday through 11:59pm Friday, closed Saturday. Zevel is currently authorized to operate from 5:00 am to 6:00 pm Monday through Friday; 5:00 am to 5:00 pm Saturday; closed Sunday. A crusher would also be installed at the facility. The crusher and sorting line equipment operation would be limited to the hours between 7:00 am and 10:00 pm Sunday through Friday. Why does Zevel need this modification? Although the permit currently allows Saturday operation, Zevel currently remains closed on Saturday for religious observance. Zevel is seeking a permit modification to allow expanded hours that will include Sunday and nighttime operation, but closed on Saturday. The proposed crusher would enable Zevel to keep more material from going to landfills by increasing the amount of material that is beneficially recycled. How might the modification affect the surrounding community? Zevel is aware that truck traffic and noise from the crusher may be of concern. However, the proposed change in operating hours will not increase the number of trucks that Zevel handles each week. The proposal only changes the hours during which the facility receives trucks. Additionally, Zevel will take measures to insure that the crusher complies with City and State noise limits. If you are concerned about potential impacts, you may wish to get more information. See below to find out how to get more information. How can I participate in the permit modification review process? You may provide comments to be considered in the permit modification review process, including comments on the operation and conditions of the facility, impacts to the community and the draft permit. Comments may be given at public meeting(s) and in writing during the public comment period. Contact information for Zevel is provided below to obtain more information on meetings and comment period dates. Where can I get more information about the proposed modification? • Key documents relating to the proposed modification will be stored at the following repositories: Hunts Point Branch, New York Public Library, 877 Southern Blvd, Bronx, NY 10459, (718) 617-0338; and on the web at www.zeveltransfer.com • Attend a public meeting about the change in operating hours and the proposed crusher. This meeting is scheduled to be held on Nov. 30, 2017 at 6:30 PM at Hunts Point Recreation Center, 765 Manida St., Bronx NY. Call, write or email: Isaac Danesh, Zevel Transfer, LLC 620 Truxton Street, Bronx, NY 10474 Tel: 718-991-7700 email: www.zeveltransfer.com/DECModifications2017 Who is responsible for reviewing the permit application?
