Ireland will be asked to stop using their 262 Middle Rd. categorical disposal facility until they resolve noncompliance with Act 250, a notice from the District 4 Environmental Commission says. The concrete giant and registered parties have 10 days from the commission’s Aug. 30 “pending issuance of stay” to file a rebuttal.
