How We Came About

We woke up one day to discover that Greene County was being considered as the destination for 445,000 Tons of toxic ash from incinerated garbage that Wheelabrator Technolgy, Inc. was proposing to dump every year in the quarry off of Route 9W that was owned by Peckham Industries and LaFarge Holcim Cement, within one mile of our treasured Hudson River.  We rose up, got organized, and woke our community to this danger.  Our local press helped bring attention to this critical threat.  We got involved, and fought it off  . . . for now.  But we woke up in more ways than one . . . environmental organization sustainable development reduce reuse recycle

We realized there would be other threats to our community unless we implemented laws to further protect our Hudson River and the communities that line it from opportunistic corporations, that call themselves "environmentalists" but are just the opposite.  We are pushing for model legislation to keep their dumps and toxins away from our Hudson River, ground water, and bodies.  Do you care?  Do you want to  get involved?   Let us know! We are always looking for volunteers to help us make our vision a reality. We'll help you find a way to volunteer that best suits you. We're excited to have you join the team!

Thank You

We need a comprehensive solid waste management policy here or we will continue to suffer attacks from opportunists and criminal dumpers who will "make one for us."   Ideas?  We'd love to here them.  We are working on a plan for piloting Clear Stream Recycling in Greene County pilot communities.  Full recycling in exchange for free domestic waste pick up.  Find out more.  Get involved.  We also already have the following initiatives:
