Join us Tuesday, 9/5 in Seneca Falls

Our New York State Constitution states that everyone has the right to clean air, water, and a healthy environment, but the Seneca Falls Town Board could sell that right for a price. They're considering a new Host Community Agreement with Texas-based Waste Connections that could extend the life of NY's largest landfill beyond its planned closure date of 2025, bringing in more profit to the town, in exchange for polluting the state for 15 more years.

We urge each and every one of you – from Seneca Falls and beyond – to join for the Seneca Falls town meeting on Tuesday, September 5 at 5:30 p.m at the Seneca Falls Community Center located at 35 Water Street. We'll have a demonstration in front of the building prior to the meeting beginning at 6:00pm. Please RSVP to if you can be there.

Investigative journalist Peter Mantius reports that Department of Health census tract data shows that there are elevated rates of lung cancer surrounding the landfill that can't be explained by other causes like smoking or radon exposure. PFAS-Laden leachate from the landfill gets trucked all across the state to Buffalo, Watertown, Chittenango, and Steuben County, where the receiving wastewater treatment plants do not have the mechanism for removing these toxic forever chemicals before discharging it into our waterways and drinking water sources.

The birthplace of Women's Rights is now identified as a disadvantaged community.

While tax revenue is up for most of the FLX counties in July year over year from '22 to '23 averaging almost 12%, it's actually down by -2.5% in Seneca County, home to Seneca Meadows Landfill. 

This decision has implications for all New Yorkers. Let's send a message to Waste Connections and the town board that we're united in preserving our environment, our economy, our community, and the Finger Lakes!
