Cortland and Onondaga counties partner on trash

Cortland and Onondaga counties partner on trash

Cortland and Onondoga Counties are working on a regional solid waste partnership, and residents of both counties have the opportunity to voice their opinion on the scope of the project.

The proposal would send Cortland County’s trash to be processed at Onondoga County’s waste treatment facility which turns trash into electricity, and aims to increase energy production and reduce greenhouse gas emissions.

Cortland County Spokesperson Jeremy Boylan says in exchange, the ash byproduct will be sent to the County landfill.

“The process is going to determine if it is a win for the environment,” Boylan said. “We are generating electricity and reducing solid waste.”

Boylan hopes the process can begin in about one year.
