Draft Cayuga County Local Solid Waste Management Plan – Public Comment Period Now Open 

New York State requires that all mandated Planning Units provide and continually update a Local Solid Waste Management Plan (LSWMP) on behalf of the Towns, Villages, and Cities within. Cayuga County, as a NYS DEC mandated Planning Unit, is responsible for providing this LSWMP on behalf of its 33 municipalities. An LSMWP is a planning document intended to be used as a tool for organization and decision making in regard to a Planning Unit’s solid waste management and recycling program.
