MULTI-CONSTITUENT ASPECT OF THE FEDERATION
Each of the three member Associations has developed a mission statement which reflects their individual goals to promote sound solid waste management practices which are in concert with the New York State solid waste management hierarchy, being the reduction, reuse, recycling, resource recovery through waste-to-energy facilities and landfilling of discarded materials.

“The Federation’s structure and extensive networking capability — through its annual conference — are the envy of most state and many national solid waste and recycling organizations. Our broad base of public, private and not-for-profit recyclers, composters and waste managers, coupled with industry business people, brings all the right decision makers together.”
– Meg Morris, Past Chairperson
