At the time of publication, the Onondaga County legislature had not yet voted on a proposal to import trash from Cortland County in exchange for that county accepting ash from the Onondaga County incinerator (also known as the waste-to-energy facility).
This past October, the Iroquois Group and the Jamesville Positive Action Committee (JAMPAC) sponsored a program by Neil Seldman, Ph.D., co-founder and president of the Institute for Local Self-Reliance (ILSR) in Washington D.C. Seldman discussed the many challenges posed by Onondaga county’s waste incinerator and municipal waste stream, as well as the highly controversial Ash for Trash Proposal. Attendees also learned about communities across the country who have invested in jobs from recycling.
