Solid Waste Management
At Seneca Meadows, we operate our waste management facility with an environmental integrity that surpasses industry standards: With more extensive environmental controls and higher caliber monitoring equipment, we go beyond the requirements of our permits to provide advanced protection for the air and water at our site and in our community.
The Seneca Meadows Landfill operates under 50 local, state and federal permits; and undergoes inspections from the New York State Department of Environmental Conservation and the Environmental Protection Agency.
All of the communities that we service, at Seneca Meadows, maintain active recycling programs. Incoming waste materials must meet State and federal non-hazardous, solid waste parameters, and all non-municipal waste is laboratory tested to ensure that these parameters are met.
Environmental controls, such as our landfill liner and leachate collection system, are the key to operating an ecologically sound waste management facility. Take a moment to learn how this system works to protect groundwater in the video below.
