Seneca Co. CCE, Seneca Meadows to partner

The Seneca Meadows Landfill and Seneca County Cornell Cooperative Extension announced a partnership today to strengthen environmental education in the County. Programming provided by the joint venture will cover topics ranging from acceptable recyclable materials (a subject of frequent misunderstanding, according to the County’s recycling department), to conserving energy and alternative energy production. “This partnership offers great potential for comprehensive green education,” said SCCCE’s Executive Director, Ave Bauder. “With our combined resources, we will be in a position to offer more programs, information and services to the residents, schools, organizations and businesses in our community. An immediate result of the collaboration will be the establishment of an event recycling service. The service, which will be offered through Seneca Meadows, will provide recycling toters and free recyclables drop-off for large scale events such as festivals and open houses. The service will be publicized through Cornell Cooperative Extension’s Seneca GR&EEN program (Generating Recycling & Energy Education Now), a teen recycling and energy education group.To learn more about the environmental programs and educational literature available in Seneca County, visit senecacountycce.org, senecameadows.com, or call their offices: SCCCE 315-539-9251, Seneca Meadows 315-539-5624.
