Organizers of the ‘Trash Free by 23’ movement announced that a third protest, the second of it’s kind held in Seneca Falls – will be taking place on Saturday, November 5th.
The walk will begin at 10:30 am at Academy Square, 12 North Park Street. Organizers ask that participants arrive by 10:00 am.
“The purpose of the walk is to point attention to the need for the Town of Seneca Falls to enact local legislation that will make the Town ‘Trash Free by ’23,’” the group said in a press release.
The protest walk will begin at 10:30 am at Academy Square, proceed down Cayuga Street, through downtown Seneca Falls, and end in the People’s Park at 15 Water Street, Seneca Falls.
Speakers have been lined up to speak at the gazebo at the park. A partial list of speakers includes:

In a statement, Karen Rothfuss said of the rally and protest, This is an important time for Seneca Falls and [the community’s] support is needed to help convey a strong message that the landfill’s days are numbered and Seneca Falls and Waterloo.”
Organizers ask that attendees dress warmly, as it’s expected to be chilly. Free hot chocolate and coffee will be available at People’s Park.
