The goal is always to advance the Village in any way that makes Waterloo a better place to live, work, and play.

The Village will take the next step and acquire an initial set of waste and recycling containers to be placed along Main St. Waterloo.Seneca Meadows, Inc. is dedicated to the preservation and advancement of the environment: recycling up to 2 million tires per year, partnering in the production of methane generated energy for 18,000 homes, supporting wetlands conservation and environmental programming, and providing free residential recycling and electronics recycling drop off services.
