Community Calling On Cuomo To Reject 'Waste-To-Energy' Project Proposal

Posted: Updated:

ROMULUS, NY (WENY) -- Community members in Romulus want the governor to put an end to a proposal that would put a $365,000,000 trash incinerator at the sight of the former Seneca Army Depot.

The waste-to-energy plant would turn garbage hauled into the facility into electricity.

Last month, Circular enerG's attorney said the company was withdrawing its special use permit application for the project.

The change came after the state DEC told enerG officials they had to follow the state's Public Service Law, requiring major electric generating facilities be reviewed by a sitting board. 

Still, the proposal has drawn controversy over the potential environmental impacts.

On Tuesday, Finger Lakes business owners, elected officials, and community members will call on Governor Cuomo to reject the project.
