Sludge storage in a residential area? Isn't it bad enough they allow Harcum to pump human waste into all the farmland surrounding everyone's homes now this. Nothing like catching a whiff of the S&H farms tanker truck full of human waste running the roads all summer
No, we can't let this happen.
Biff Burns trying to make mo money!!! I guess his wife didn’t get enough through her medical practice. Funny how that FBI investigation just disappeared.
WHERE WAS THE NOTICE.
It’s Burns not Harcum and it’s waste from poultry plants not human waste
Don't keep complaining; DO SOMETHING ABOUT IT...It's up to you.
THIS IS BS were was the TOWN NOTICES for this bs BIFF ur toast.
Here we go Joe your site about to get tons of hits I’m gonna tell you now let’s stop bashing the farmers they’re forced and a half and the farm this way by our government and everyone else go ahead and bash Burns or the Harcums or anyone else .... We can start this war right now and I’m not neither one of them and they don’t pay any of my bills and I like both of them
This AFFECT Hebron also....JACKS MARKET UR GREEDY AND WILL BE BOYCOTTED.
This will harm property values and deter economic development. If the codes allows it, then the codes must be revised.
No notice ? What the hell is the DEP thinking ? The good ole boys at work $$$$$$$ under the table
Bob Culver how is this not in conflict with the county code.
A wise man said “it is better to remain silent and be thought a fool than to speak and remove all doubt”. You have removed all doubt. Harcum and S & H Farms do NOT spread “human waste”. They spread sludge from local poultry plants which is within environmental rules and regulations. If you have a problem with it, complain to the Department of Environment. They are the ones who made it legal and permissible. Don’t bad mouth a local business who operates within the law and employs many local residents. I’m sure you employ many local residents and pay into the states coffers through numerous taxes and permit fees. Go back to mommy’s basement and eat another Hit Pocket while picking your nose.
This Ahole from jacks market just opened up a can of Whoop ass.
Where is the environment study ? This guy Biff has to be paying someone off ??? Good old boys in the county ? This would be ANOTHER SALISBURY WASTE OVERFLOW ISSUE 3 MILLION GALLONS WTF.
WHO is allowing harcum and when you be smell it call the EPA.
Joe PLEASE put this up tomm AM.
U don't care about human waste ? Post ur address I have something for u .....also this isn't about that it's about this was done on the down low.
I guess your a good ole boy covering up for your bud ? $$$$$$ ....Post your address and let's build it there .
Why was this meeting not made Aware of until the last minute ? Someone hid it at the court house ? Why wasn't this on the local media ?
We know that but harcum does dump waste b ask the neighborhood folk Fool.
Human waste has been a fertilizer for years in a lot of countries , get over it people. If you disagree with this , move to da bury and bend over.
@10:16 you mean to tell me that Harcum didn't sign a 25 year agreement with the city of Philadelphia to haul all their treated waste and bring it down here adding water to it to use as a fertilizer for all the lower eastern shore? Going out and buying a 300,000 terrigator and looking for contract truckers to help him haul it out of Philadelphia? Think maybe I know a little bit more than you realize
The poultry business will be gone from the 'shore in 10 years or less. Then will see how you feel about manure!
@629 ‘ole’ boy? lol 🇲🇽 think you mean ‘ol boy’...
This is "BIFF" making millions from Corporate it's NOT about a small farmer he is GREEDY.
I will post my address lol I don’t care and for the record yahoo, it’s being built on private property... keep playing games I’ll post the “properties” I have I’ll let him and his competition down the road put them everywhere they legally can.....
6:49...you do NOT know. If you do, please tell me “oh wise one”, when was the last time the Harcum’s hauled this “treated waste” from Philadelphia to the shore? It has been YEARS. This is a completely different issue. Don’t use this issue to complain about something that may have happened over 7 years ago but is no longer being done. You must be the same old geezer who sits around and complains about how a teacher spoke to you in elementary school 60 years ago. That part of your life, like the Philadelphia project, is done and over with. Move on. Quit living in the past. You can’t change that. Worry about the present and try to correct the misdeeds that are going on in front of you. Things that can actually be changed. Like this Biff Burns tank and the medical practice, that his wife used to commit fraud, thereby funding his outrageous land purchases and lavish lifestyle. Where is the FBI investigation? They raided the place, removed all files and made a big public production. Where is the case now?
This project falls under MDA guidance not MDE.....It is a large investment on behalf the owner....I am not one to stop someone for making money I just think the location for this project needs to be altered. It needs to go somewhere off RTE 50 or a major road with adequate infrastructure...Not down country back roads that flood on a regular due to improper maintenance of ditches and have not been paved since the model t was put into production....However it was brought to our attention that Dorchester County denied the permits for the project.....One thing to note.
Tried complaining to the EPA 10:16PM. Living in a rural area there are currently 15 poultry houses within a 1/2 mile radius of our residence. Admitedly all but four were there before me; now four more are planned right next to me. I complained about air and water pollution, noise pollution, property value, and the stress on the small country lane that would access the houses. I was told the farmers have the right to do business since it is zoned agricultural. I get that but at what point does it reach saturation?
He is getting away with it bc it's considered a BARN.
@7:41 I'm with you on this one!! I've smelled those S&H trucks come by my house and that's NO poultry waste their hauling. You can smell SHIT for a good ten minutes after they pass by
Put it on Burns' or Harcum's property. Please, all locals do not buy a damn thing from Burns' place, Jack's Market. Burn him where it hurts. Bob Culver......shouldn't you be involved in this? How would you like it if they put it at Pirate's Wharf? This s**t has to stop. Getting by with this kind of thing because your name is Burns or Harcum must not be. I too, want to know why there was no public hearing on this. This is the first I have heard of it. People, do not let this happen. Who knows what will be next, or where. Could be in your back yard.
Many people responding to this have never smelled this stuff before.it's actually smells worst than any human waste I've ever smelled.You have to follow the money on this.The Poultry Companies can save money because this is not treated just straight into the trucks.The waste includes fecal material chunks of chicken flesh and fat.You will never see any of this printed by any local news because-hey this is Perdue.And for any idiot that says I'm against farming,not true as half our income comes from a farm.I just would like to be able to enjoy my deck and have a few people over.
No hearing for a container on a farmers land the issue is with the MDA AND EPA CALL THEM .
7:10The FBI is probably building a case for the Medicare Fraud (Two billing numbers supposedly used for same visit)May be 5 to 7 years before they actMedicare Fraud = Jail TimeRemember Dr, McClain
It smells like decaying flesh, whether it's human or chicken I don't care, it's a stench that can't be dealt with. And I've worked on hog farms and lived near chicken houses all my life!
First, the intersection of Porter Mill Rd and Riggin Rd is not near either Mardela or Hebron. It is in the middle of nowhere. It will likely not affect either town. There are only a couple of homes in that area and no doubt every spring and fall they have smelled that smell. I live near several of their farms and get hit with that odor and can deal with it. The only real concern is keeping it from accidentally spilling into Rewastico Creek which is in the area.Drive out there and you can see where they are talking about. I was there yesterday and it is either forest or fields. It is a better location than the fields that they sold to the people for the chicken houses off of Naylor Mill Rd previously.
Totally not against the farmers but one has to wonder why we have some of the highest cancer rates in the entire country!?!?!!
Are you a Russian bot?
I guess when you fart it lingers on you and know one else can smell it ? Your CLUELESS EVER HERE OF WIND.
Joe Just came back from the town council meeting the ISSUE is with the PLANNING COMMISSION who's rules are old out of date This is a INDUSTRIAL PROJECT being placed on AGRICULTURE land and once again the good ole boys doing things wink wink ....we love farmers but this should have went to the people even the county council agreed the AGG rules are old and outdated but as long as that farmer from Jack's Market makes millions he couldn't care less so much for being a good neighbor ? The BIG ISSUE is how the planning commission is NIT making the county council aware what's going on with permits especially big issues like this ...the farmer also has another property to which he could do this on and it's COMMERCIAL let's see if he does the right thing ./ Mr Cannon and the rest of the council seemed to be on our side ....I just hope the council doesn't put road weight restrictions on that road.
Wait until the mosqitos get infected and spread disesase from the waste.
Where is the EPA REVIEW ?
OSHA needs to be called in also the EPA.
Call 9/11 every time you can't breathe and start a class action Lawsuit.
They got shot down for this tank in Dorchester County, so yes it can be stopped. No it is not in the middle of nowhere, people do live down there and should not have to live with this. If you think it doesn't smell try riding by the one on the Harcum farm when they are pumping it out.
And with a 3 million gallons tank wait to that smells and SPILLS.
I am calling the feds to get involved.
Road weight restrictions to 20,000 lbs excluding grain and feed and CK POINTS.
Why is it that Biff's wife's Medicare fraud case was never mentioned anymore. Please don't tell me this has been swept under the rug and assume no one remembers this. We all remember this very well and are still waiting for answers. Why are there still no answers this long after it happened? Did somebody's palm get greased?
Really ? Expect bags of shit on your property scumbag.
708Do it and I will have the police CK every truck.
Harcum expect the EPA to give you MASSIVE FINES and OSHA inspections the next time WE smell human shit.
MSP truck Enforcement will start paying special attention to all these roads mark my words.)
BIFF aint making $ at Jack's shit market anymore so now the ,"Farmer" has bowed to the corporate bastards so much for love thy neighbor ? He also has sold out other local farmers because of the sneaky way he is trying to put INDUSTRIAL Sewage on AGRICULTURE land.
If Dorchester County didn't want it that says a lot from those Rednecks.
It doesn't matter which local idiot you point out in the ongoing local circus, Biff,Harcum, DAY, Cannon etc. once the old timers that made this area a great place to live passed on these idiots sold their souls for the almighty dollar. There's no character or integrity in any of these clowns. It's all about who can brag about their successes or how they ride around in 80,000 SUV. Harcun has had free reign out there in western Wicomico county with the poison he's putting down as so called fertilizer. There's very few areas thatt don't have homes close by.
Don't live in that area but feel for the people who do.This was very sneaky on the County's side for not making this action public.
That's bc of Planning n zoning not making them aware of it (
Wait until the deer get infected be by the 3 million gallons swamp mix spread by mosqitos and fly bites sounds like a mass class action law suit.
Nothing like born locals screwing other born locals over and they talk about us come here's ????????
Good ol boys screwing over other good ol boys.
Lol yup so much for good old patriotism to your community.
What happened "Biff" y didn't u show up to the meeting couldn't find a safe parking spot for your $80.000 SUV Jack's Market once a great store what did u do to it over the years where you can't make it on a Major Hwy as a business ? So now you have to buy high test gasoline with your cooperate millionare CC.SELL OUT
I know this is asking a lot but can we please please re-post this again for the next few days I know there’s other important things to discuss or a post on the site but this is just great I’ve came and checked it out about 10 times today and yes I do work I really am not being very productive today thank God I work for myself I don’t have social media but this is just great listening to everybody bitch and complain! Lol
5:29It has already made it as one of the top posts this week. I also added it as a feature post. It is located on the top left now so you can click on it.
Call Dept of Ag. each day and complain-this is Dwight Dotters number.He's the one to talk to ,his email is dwightdotter@marylandgov.By the way if Dorchester County can stop this so can we-just remember the squeeky wheel gets the grease.People should not have to live in this stuff.Also going down Porter Mill Rd. the sod company has fuel tanks right on the road by the sharp turn,call osha on them.
Thank you this is just GREAT !!!!!!Has literally made my day!
Like the saying goes there's a sucker born every day and these jackasses have sold out their community for a few dollars. big corporate found a way to rid themselves of this waste and these idiots couldn't jump at the chance fast enough. I'd like to know what Harcum has stashed away out there in his remote operation in cherry walk. I guarantee he's "bent" a few rules along the way. Lastly he's the Biggest ass**** you could come by
I can answer that question. He has 23 BILLION dollars stashed away in several fire proof safes hidden in bunkers under his farm land. Trust me. I have seen it. He showed me one day because I couldn’t believe it. It is ALL in small unmarked bills. He has reinforced the bunkers with concrete. He had them built under the cover of darkness so no one would see. A family member built it. He was paid CASH. That way, there would be no snitches. He has several entrances and exits located throughout the woods and farm field that are concealed by hydraulic lifts. It’s a big operation. Osama Bin Laden could have hidden in there. This is FOR REAL.
8:17Thanks a lot! That’s great!Now all those treasure hunters from Oak Island will be searching on Athol Road!
8:53...No. The original poster from 6:56 told them it’s on a “remote operation” on Cherrywalk Road. They don’t even know the correct location!!
8:53Locals refer to it as A$$hole Road!
Tare it all up lol.
Hahahaha. So scared !!! Shaking in fear !! Yet you can’t post your name brave one !
Have you people ever heard of the Maryland Right To Farm Act? You signed it when you bought your house!
I think the poster meant what kind of used waste oils, gear oils old equipment that probably isn't too environmentally friendly he's tucked away in that remote area of the county. ASSHOLE road is definitely appropriate
@5:29 I'd bet my left testicle that ass**** has a ton of 55 gallon drums of waste buried throughout and now lord knows what he's got stored on properties that's "called" agriculture waste. Farmers have no damn business in doing waste management work.
9:08You are right the location is on A$$hole Road
Cherry walk is a generalized location idiots!! OK to pacify all the babies is Athol road better??
Yes we have but when you have OTHER farmers complaining about him even ones that gree up with him says A LOT Also he fooled planning and zoning as the waste is INDUSTRIAL.
As soon as people start smelling this start going to the hospital and start a CLASS ACTION LAWSUIT.
People stop bashing the man and his family .... Biff is a reasonable person with a good heart .... If neighbors just talk to him man on man and advise they do not want this project he would hear them out and find an alternative location ... He has not sold out to corporate Just trying to earn a living like the rest of us ....No one wants this in there backyard but the way to handle it is with a conversation not verbal abuse ...
UPDATEThe issue is the farmer did not make the PEOPLE AWARE bc he didn't have too but SHAME ON HIM BC this is the OUTCOME.
@11:23 horseshit!! The way to handle it would be the parties that are dealing with this garbage to go to the community and get there input prior to implementation. When are you idiots going to realize that making a dollar doesn't override the safety and well being of others. This like everything else around here is shady as hell and it's time people stop tolerating the abuse of our region. These guys have NO clue what the long-term effects on something like this are. As you stated all they see are dollar signs and the corporations they deal with are rated to have it off their hands. Everyone is out for themselves to make a quick buck now and screw everybody elsee. me me me give me mine, when is enough enough? How much damn money do you need you greedy bastards
F*** the ass*"*** both of them. Their not handling this poison for the need but out of sheer greed. How big of a house or how many houses do you need? Do you REALLY I mean REALLY need to ride around on 80,000 escalade SUV? You idiots don't have any formal education or credentials to be allowing or participating in handling this garbage. You're merely pawns in the corporations game off dangling the carrottin your faces and you idiots took it not thinking about anyone but yourselves and your immediate families.
S-n-a-k-e-s!! The only problem is they are getting called out on their backdoor shady ass way of doing these deals. I've seen the Harcum dic*h**** workers even moving the tankers in the late hours of the night to avoid this very backlash from Joe public then spreading it the next couple of days. He sees only dollar signs and gives two shits about anyone else

Call the DEP AND EPA
No one is saying that a farmer can't farm. But this is on an industrial scale. Biff is not producing this himself on his farm. It is being shipped in. Whose product is this and why aren't they housing it on their property until it is to be consumed?
Who cares what vehicle they drive. Worry about yourself and YOUR family. It’s none of your business what vehicles people drive or what houses they own. That’s the problem...everybody worries about what everyone else is doing or spending. It’s none of YOUR business how people choose to spend their money.
If Biff and Candy want this sh3t then let it be put right next to their house. and when i say right next to their house, i mean on the same lot that their house is on. 10 ft within the front door and by house i mean their main residence. Where they park their heads every night. Its bad enough that the shore has to deal with all the sh3t that is produced here but to import more in by the millions of gallons? Oh hell NO. You people in that area need to fight this and fight it hard. Speak now or forever hold your peace. If Dorchester county would not permit it then that speaks volumes in its self. You people on the county council and other agencies need to step up and put a stop to this for the sake of all of us here on the shore. All it will take is a leak due to non upkeep of those tanks then it gets into our water supply. JUST SAY NO!
Wicomico county should stop the practice of letting anybody bring poop here from other states.
my Insurance company went after Burns after i reported them. Always check your bills before you pay them. Whats being billed vs what you were seen for. If something doesn't look right, then ask questions.
How do Biff and Candy sleep at night? I guess by counting money.
@5:53 I'm with you on this one. Why in the world would any idiot like these two(Biff Burns? & Harcum) take waste from other municipalities, corporations in other states and dispose of it right in their own back yards? The two worst things a person can give in to GREED & PRIDE!! In today's fast paced social media look at me society people just can't help themselves. I'm sure these idiots go out of their way to portray a life of success and luxury but it will inevitably eat them up from within. By the sound of things neither of these two horses asses are thought very highly of by their peers. That in itself will inevitably weigh heavily on their conscience
How dare the guy try to make money. Sounds like a lot of jealousy. Hmmm.
All these comments about what they drive.....sounds like a bunch of jealous people. Who cares what they drive, who cares what they spend their money on or how big their house might be. If you don't like something, they go talk to them. Don't bash them under the cloak of anonymity.
You mean like Burns did putting this thing through without neighbors notified of a meeting or hearing? Why was there not a public hearing notice posted at the site or put in the paper??
@6:07 & 8:52 it's idiots like you and your mentality of make money by any means necessary is one of the reasons this country is so screwed up. I guess it's OK to bring some drugs out on the west side of wicomico county and make a killing selling dope to children too right? Bunch of f'ing idiots this area is made up of. If your dealing in poison whatever it consists of to better yourselves then he'll no it's not cool when others lives might be at stake. F*** HARCUM AND BURNS their both pathetic and sneaky as hell by the way they handle this garbage their dealing with
It's sad that some of you think these guys are ANYTHING to be jeoulous of. To make money slinging shit, sludge, poultry waste you can have it. I wouldn't want the burden of carrying on my conscience that I might be making others sick down the road. They have no knowledge of what this stuff might to to the next generation of people living on the surrounding areas and drinking the water it possibly is contaminating. Who gives two shits wtf they drive cause in the end we're all riding in the back of a Hearst to our final resting spot.
I do believe it was the Garvin's that were bragging about how expensive their SUV was and how they weren't affiliated with the Harcum farm that was asking for help to prevent losing their farm. That right there should tell you what kind of people you're dealing with. Ralph "shit slinging" Harcum cuts the throats of his own immediate family do you think he cares about people in the community and the consequences of this slug, human feces whatever the hell it is?
Was seriously thinking of buying a house in the Mardela/Hebron area so my kids could go to Mardela High instead of one of those shithole high schools in SBY. Now, NO F***ING WAY! Guess I'll concentrate my search to areas east of SBY. Closer to the beach anyway...
Good. We didn’t want your punk ass out here anyway!!
1232. Makes sense to me. Its actually the cry babies like you that ruin this place. Stay on the corner and keep begging. Always a hater.
You should move to the east side of town. It's best for all of us. We are crowded enough as it is, so go elsewhere!
you fools, i couldn't give a rats arse of what who drives what. Now i do care about what can bring health concerns to me and my family and the community. This is not about what those greedy arses drive. The community should not have to be worried about what issues they have have to deal with in the future because of the greed of these few. Period end of story! I agree the county Should put bans in place of anybody being able to bring it in from outside of the county.
The corrupt county health dept is silent but let a small business try to put a small building on a piece of land and they will shut you down because it doesn't perc to their ridiculous standard.
When you donate to the Sierra club and environmentalists causes you get to do anything you want.
For years the state put a moratorium so farmers couldnt build a chicken house but along come the millionaires buying farms and put as many as they want, proves the corruption in government.
8:07It isn't just that deparment. It's the entire county. Things keep getting worse. We don't live in a free country anymore. Too many rules and regulations that the elite bypass daily while the others are left to pay for it.
There will soon be nothing you can do about it. Deregulation and the loosening of " Right to Farm Laws " nation wide and a cap on nuisance law suites from neighboring residents are to counteract income lost on agricultural exports in this tariff war.Anyone with a well on the shore should really invest in sophisticated water treatment systems and have their water tested regularly.
I said right from the get go this was gonna be a big hit I believe we could just post a local shit around the area like this and get a ton of hits on it just goes to show you ours hillbillies out here in the country really do follow the real news and it’s great because I can tell by the way some people are talking who it is .... It’s so funny that over just words you can tell who the person is by the words they put together especially if you’re from this area you can even tell the people that are defending themselves it’s just hilarious not the situation but just how many hits there’s so many other things going on right now around the area more importantly the manage trying to take over for that punk Jake it gets 30 comments and an article about shit literally shit gets 115 just imagine the people that haven’t commented that read it!!! Love it just goes to show you how many people really do come to this site it’s just like getting on Facebook or something ... By the way hope business went good this week down to the beach ! I may have to come jump in the pool this afternoon I don’t care how cold that water is
JOHN CANNON HAS BEEN BRIBED TIME FOR A FBI INVESTIGATION.$$$$$$$
Boycott chicken and PERDUE.
Aka John SLUMLORD Cannon.
Lol no actually a resident of mardela
Stop eating chicken and transition to a plant based diet, cleans up the filth out of both your body and the environment
We need to keep this in front of the county council. People need to attend the meetings and voice their concerns!! I live in this area and my quality of life is going to be greatly impacted. Property values are going to plummet!!
One of the concerns that the citizens have with this project is the impact on Riggin Road. It's a tar and chip road and couldn't withstand the constant traffic. Well, lo and behold Riggin Road is all of the sudden going to be paved with asphalt!! Why is this happening now?? Something smells here!!(no pun intended)
