Syracuse, NY - Three top officials from the Onondaga County Resource Recovery Agency answered questions today at about a proposal to swamp Cortland County trash for incinerator ash.
The tentative agreement was outlined last week by officials from Onondaga and Cortland counties. Under the plan, OCRRA would burn Cortland County's trash and Cortland County would bury OCRRA's incinerator ash.
They said for the first time that the earliest the deal could go into effect is May 2015, when OCRRA's current contract to haul ash to High Acres landfill near Fairport expires.
A transcript of today's Q&A is available in the box below.
Answering questions were three top OCRRA officials: Mark Donnelly, executive director and former board member; Amy Miller, agency engineer; and Warren Simpson, business manager.
