The New York State Association for Solid Waste Management
(NYSASWM), New York State’s
oldest and largest statewide solid waste organization, was founded
with a mission to promote efficient, effective and environmentally
sound solid waste management practices in New York State through
the training, education and evaluation of technologies. Since
its inception in 1975, NYSASWM has worked with solid waste managers
throughout New York State toward its mission. In this time period,
open dumps and old polluting incinerators were closed and replaced
by state-of-the-art, environmentally protective landfills, recycling
and waste-to-energy facilities. NYSASWM’s mission is still
as important today as it was in 1975, since solid waste practices
are constantly evolving.
Organic waste composting, waste reduction, thermal degradation,
recycling, greenhouse gas emission reduction and product stewardship
are just a few of the areas that NYSASWM is involved with to
enhance solid waste management practices in New York State.
