PUBLIC HEARINGS- LANDFILL INFO SESSIONS
The Town of Seneca Board will be holding three info sessions to engage Town of Seneca residents and property owners in discussions to inform the future of the landfill when the contract expires in 2028.
The sessions, held on June 28th, 29th and 30th from 7 to 9 PM, will be facilitated by nonprofit consultant, Causewave Community Partners. The sessions will cover a brief history of the landfill, background on the current contract and things to consider when deciding on the future of the landfill. Following the presentation, residents and property owners from the Town of Seneca will have the opportunity to ask questions and share feedback with the board.
Possible options to consider include, closing the landfill and finding new location for waste disposal or expanding the footprint of the existing landfill to continue operations. Under the current contract with Casella Waste Management, landfill revenue contributes to reduced taxes, free waste disposal, fire protection fees to town districts, and development and upgrades to the town.
In order to continue operating the landfill would need to expand its footprint and a new contract would be negotiated. Closing the landfill would mean the county would need to identify a new location for waste disposal.

TOWN OF SENECA SCHEDULES SPECIAL MEETING
The Town of Seneca Town Board will hold a special meeting on Tuesday, June 7th, 2022, at 7:00 PM to hear a presentation from an organization that the Town of Seneca would like to contract with to help engage Town of Seneca residents in discussions about the future of the Landfill. The meeting will be held at the Seneca Town Hall located at 3675 Flint Road, Stanley, NY.
TOWN OF SENECA SPECIAL BOARD MEETING ON JUNE 7TH
BOARD TO VOTE ON A PLAN TO GATHER RESIDENT INPUT ON LANDFILL
The Town of Seneca Board will meet on June 7th at 7:00 pm to hear a presentation from a nonprofit organization it might contract with to help engage Town of Seneca residents in discussions to inform the future of the landfill.
Ontario County’s contract on the existing landfill in the Town of Seneca expires in 2028 and the town board needs to determine its preference for future plans. To make this decision, the board would like to engage residents to get input on this decision. Causewave Community Partners will share a proposal outlining a process to assist in garnering input from residents on whether to close or expand the landfill.
Under the current contract with Casella Waste Management, town residents get a variety of benefits including reduced taxes, free waste disposal and other town improvements. More broadly, Ontario County residents, benefit from annual revenue generated from landfill operations.
In order to retain these benefits and continue operations, the landfill will need to expand into adjacent property. Closing the landfill would require the County to find a new location for waste disposal outside of Ontario County.
Following the June 7th meeting, the Town Board will release information on how residents can share their opinions as it pertains to the future of the landfill, which will ultimately be made by the Town and County.
