Pathological Waste Incinerator Possible for Snow Hill

SNOW HILL, Md. - Snow Hill may soon be the home of a pathological waste incinerator.  That equipment is used to incinerate the remains of human bodies that were donated to science.

James Bardsley is the President of the Anatomic Gift Foundation and is the man trying to bring the incinerator to Snow Hill.  The operation has already received zoning approval in Snow Hill.  Part of the deal between the town and Bardsley was that the incinerator, which can also handle animal remains, will not incinerate chickens for at least the first year of operation.  The next step is applying with the Maryland Department of the Environment.  If all goes according to plan, according to Bardsley, the incinerator operation could be up and running in about six months time.

Bardsley's new neighbor on Timmons Street in Snow Hill would be Bruce Young who owns a business just down the street from the possible incinerator location.

"I have no problem with it.  As long as there's no odor.  Snow Hill has supposedly researched the project, they said there's no odor at his other business he has across the bridge.  And as long as there is no smell, then I have no problem with it," Young said on Thursday.

Bardsley said folks in Snow Hill wouldn't barely know the incinerator was even in town.  He said there is no smell associated with the operation of the equipment and virtually no smoke as well.  However, WBOC did speak with a handful of people in Snow Hill on Thursday who told us they could not get behind the idea of having the incinerator in town.  Many of those people saying the whole idea made them feel uneasy.  Other worried about possible contamination from possible chicken incineration in the future.

But Bardsley said some opposition is something he expected and believes the operation will benefit the town.  Particularly in the hiring of up to six new jobs.

In terms of any potential chicken incineration in Snow Hill, Bardsley said after the first year he would have to apply with the Snow Hill Zoning Board for that ability.  But before that or the incinerator ever makes it to Snow Hill, there are still steps to be taken, including public comment periods that will have to first be held.
