Seneca Meadows Landfill Protesters Push On

There are proposed plans to extend the permit of Seneca Meadows Landfill and to bring garbage by train from New York City, and some people are not happy about it.

Some residents are concerned about the amount of trash that is coming up to Seneca Meadows because various New York landfills have closed over the years.

A group of protestors took their stand in the city of Geneva, N.Y., this weekend, and encouraged people to contact N.Y. Governor Andrew Cuomo and other politicians about this issue.

Protests against plans to extend the permit of the Seneca Meadows Landfill and bring trash by train from New York City came to Geneva over the weekend.

A crowd of several hundred marchers gathered Saturday morning at the Geneva Recreation Complex. They carried signs and shouted slogans down the Seneca Lakefront on their way to BiCentennial Park in downtown Geneva.

Town of Geneva Supervisor Mark Venuti was among the marchers. He characterized the issue as being one of finding an endpoint for the current landfills.
