 About FLZW Coalition:

The economic vitality and environmental health of our beautiful Finger Lakes area are under attack by private waste companies seeking profits, and politicians more focused on short term gain than long term impacts. FLZW Coalition is a not-for-profit volunteer organization dedicated to promoting sustainable waste management practices, and to leading the fight to oppose the expansion of landfills for out-of-county and out-of-state garbage. Their mission is to protect the air, land and water quality of the Finger Lakes region, and promote economic development that preserves our greatest asset—the natural beauty of the Finger Lakes.
