Importation of Trash from Cortland County
By Vikki Baker
Residents of Onondaga County, are once again expressing concern for the concept of importing trash to the incinerator on Rock Cut Road. The specific impetus is a plan to send incinerator ash to Cortland landfill in exchange for importing their trash to Rock Cut incinerator.
In building this plant 20 years ago, a law was passed to protect citizens from the burden of another county’s garbage by banning im- portation. The Onondaga County Legislature is able to create exceptions.
