Clean Air Public Hearing Barbara Heinzen

At a press conference held on August 26th, Barbara Heinzen, who lives downwind of the Lafarge cement plant, urged Albany County Executive Dan McCoy to sign the Albany County Clean Air Act immediately.

Also known as local law B, the law would prohibit the burning of tires, AFFF, plastics, electronic waste, low-level radioactive waste, pharmaceutical waste, and any other new waste streams. It would also prohibit the construction of new waste facilities in Albany County.
McCoy has until September 11th to decide on the bill, which passed in the legislature by 32-7.
