Foul-smelling clamshell paved road is being removed

Yesterday I posted the story of the gentleman who paved his private road with raw, unwashed clamshells, creating a horrible-smelling, maggot-infested mess. Well, all good things must come to an end. After weeks of causing a sickening stench, the rotting shells are being removed. The same company that supplied the shells is taking them away, hopefully far, far away.

From local news station 10 in Rhode Island:

The state Department of Environmental Management said its investigation found the clamshells contained a significant amount of decaying clam meat and thus were considered waste. The DEM said it issued a Letter of Non-Compliance to the property owner on Thursday, requiring the clamshells to be removed and disposed of at a licensed solid waste management or composting facility.
