The Ontario County Board of Supervisors is looking to pass an all-encompassing piece of legislation relating to the county’s solid waste and recycling regulations.
On Monday, March 21, the board’s Planning and Environmental Quality Committee met to discuss the potential combined ordinance. County attorney Holly Adams gave a presentation on the more than a dozen local solid waste and recycling laws passed since 1974, according to Finger Lakes Times.
Carla Jordan, the county’s director of the Department of Sustainability and Solid Waste Management, said the goal is to “fill gaps in these laws, eliminate what is no longer relevant, and incorporate new solid waste regulations.”
Work on the comprehensive legislation will begin immediately, with the hope it will be ready for enactment by the end of summer 2022.
