The 2014 Finger Lakes Landfill Summit will be held at Hobart and William Smith Colleges on April 9, 2014 from 6:30 to 9:00 pm at Albright Auditorium on the HWS Campus. The Summit is co-sponsored by the City of Geneva and the Colleges, and aims to foster regional dialogue and greater understanding of the impact of solid waste management on the economy and communities of the northern Finger Lakes area.
While the 2013 Landfill Summit focused on answering the question, “Where are we?” with regard to the solid waste situation in the northern Seneca Lake region, the 2014 summit will present information about “Where should we try to go?”
Presentations will be made by Ontario County Supervisors Charlie Evangelista and Mark Venuti as well as Seneca County Supervisor Steve Churchill.
In addition, experts in solid waste management, composting, recycling, and local control will present. The Summit will be moderated by Mark Lichtenstein, Executive Director of the SyracuseCoE Center for Sustainable Communities Solutions and President of the National Recycling Coalition.
The event is free and open to the public. Parking is available in the HWS Medbery Parking Lot located at 300 Pulteney St., Geneva. Albright Auditorium is located in Lansing Hall (10 St. Clair St.).
