Carl F. Cavossa Jr. was before the Falmouth Planning Board the evening of Tuesday, April 7, for a special permit to use a portion of his property for food waste disposal in front of a room packed with dissenters.

Mr. Cavossa’s proposed plan would allow him to park and service municipal solid waste trucks and dumpsters, aggregate two 100-square yard dumpsters of cardboard a week, and process up to 30,000 tons of organic material, again, per week, into compost for resale on his property at 210 Nathan Ellis Highway. Mr. Cavossa’s attorney, Jeffrey W. Oppenheim, outlined his client’s site plans, assuring the board and community that the property was “well positioned for this use” and anticipated the weekly treatment of 1,000 tons of food waste.
