Incinerator Diversion

The village pays around $29.28 per ton of solid waste (plus DPW staff labor) delivered for disposal by the Westchester Waste Management District. Since 2012, the Green Policy Task Force has been active in defining ways for the village to "divert" organic waste from our solid waste stream, in addition to those materials that can already be directly recycled (such as glass, cans, paper, cardboard).
