Draft New York State Solid Waste Management Plan

Deadline for Public Comments:

August 16, 2010

 

 

Entitled “Beyond Waste: A Sustainable Materials Management Strategy for New York State” the draft plan is now available for review.

Everyone who cares about what to do with the garbage should send their comments.

Save the Pine Bush’s position is this: 1) We need to move toward a zero-waste policy. Zero waste is achievable, its just a matter of planning and implementation 2) No more expansions of the landfill in the Pine Bush and 3) Incineration or any type of burning of municipal solid waste should be prohibited. Incineration is expensive and is the least environmentally-sound disposal method.

Please read the plan at http://www.dec.ny.gov/chemical/41831.html. Send your comments by August 16 to Ed Dassatti, NYS Department of Environmental Conservation, Division of Solid and Hazardous Materials, 625 Broadway, Albany, NY 12233-7250.
