It was ZW who BSed the city council into not accepting leachate anymore.
I though it was casella that had a tantrum and now takes it to canandaigua by their choice
GENEVA — The 260,000-gallon holding tank at the city’s wastewater treatment plant, built to store leachate from the Ontario County Landfill, is just about empty.
And that’s because the landfill — operated on behalf of the county by Casella Waste Management — is trucking most of its leachate to the Canandaigua city wastewater treatment plant. That’s despite the fact Geneva charges less at 1 or 1.5 cents per gallon versus Canandaigua’s 2 cents a gallon.
“It’s a financial decision, both currently and long term,” said Jerry Leone, Casella’s regional engineer. “Plus, we do not feel we have a partner in Geneva regarding leachate. We want to foster a partnership, not tear it apart.”
“Canandaigua is roughly the same distance for our trucks as Geneva. We’re happy with Canandaigua,” Leone said, noting the company is still evaluating other leachate options such as pre-treatment or its own treatment plant.
