Larry Feher, the owner of a local garbage company that suddenly stopped operating earlier this month, spoke publicly for the first time today.
Feher’s failure to operate left many towns and residents scrambling to find another company to pick up their trash.
“I was never here to hurt anybody. My father started this business 60 years ago. I took it over 40 years ago. I went from one truck to over 100 trucks. It’s just one of those things. I have to take the good with the bad and hope everything will turn out alright. I want to pay the employees anyone we owe money to they’ll get their money back,” said Feher.
His statement comes shortly after Solvay Bank in Syracuse filed a lawsuit against Feher Rubbish Removal claiming that the company owed nearly $3 million to the bank and others.
The State Supreme Court Judge has recently approved the bank’s request to appoint a receiver to handle the assets of Feher Rubbish Removal.
The receiver will count and sell Feher’s assets, including real estate, dumpsters and trucks with all proceeds helping to pay off the debt.
