Seneca Meadows will not accept NYC trash

Progressive Waste Solutions, which owns the Seneca Meadows Landfill said in a press release dated Wednesday, May 17th that they would not pursue a contract with New York City to accept municipal solid waste.The statement read:“Progressive Waste Solutions Ltd. announced that its subsidiary, IESI NY Corporation, has withdrawn the proposal it submitted in response to a request for proposals issued by the City of New York for municipal solid waste management transportation and disposal services. After a thorough evaluation of a number of factors, including local government opposition to the rail hauling of waste to the Seneca Meadows Landfill, the Company and its pending merger partner, Waste Connections, Inc., believe it can no longer commit to meeting certain terms of the proposed New York City contract. Notwithstanding this withdrawal, Progressive Waste Solutions remains committed to serving its current customer base across the United States and Canada, including its existing operations in New York State.”FingerLakes1.com will have more on this as Kyle Black, of Seneca Meadows Landfill joins Josh Durso on Inside the FLX at 4:15 pm Thursday afternoon.
