TLA Pond View, a C&D recycling facility based in East Providence, R.I., has reportedly shut its doors after being unable to meet a court-ordered Sept. 24 deadline to remove construction and demolition debris, according to the Providence Journal.

The Rhode Island Department of Environmental Management says the company didn't have the resources to deal with the construction debris it had accumulated. The facility, which had been in operation for 14 years had battled complaints from neighbors over noise, dust and other problems over the years. The facility had undergone weekly inspections from environmental agencies and deadlines were set for removing material.

The company reportedly had 15 employees on Sept. 11 when a Superior Court Judge gave permission to shut down the facility. The site is expected to will be cleaned up and remaining assets sold off.
