A protest against the proposed expansion of Seneca Meadows Inc.’s landfill is planned by environmental group Seneca Lake Guardian outside a public session on Wednesday.
The meeting, which will take place at the Seneca Falls Community Center, is set to discuss Seneca Meadows’ application to expand the Route 414 landfill, the largest in New York state. The protest, scheduled from 10:30 a.m. to 1 p.m., aims to advocate against bringing more garbage to Seneca Falls and call for the landfill to permanently close by 2025, as initially planned.
Seneca Meadows officials will present information at the meeting on the proposed expansion, which seeks to increase deposit space by 47 million cubic yards and keep the landfill open until 2040.
