Good news everyone!
We could not be happier to announce that, on August 28th, the Town of Cortlandt Planning Board approved the site plans for the Sustainable Materials Management, Inc. food waste compost facility. Construction and site work will begin immediately. Be sure to stay tuned for our projected opening.
We would like to thank everyone who participated in the Public Hearings. Thank you to those who came out to support our mission, and thank you to those who came out to ask questions and voice concerns. This kind of civic engagement is the foundation of a strong community and our democracy.
The history of environmental and public health issues surrounding industry and waste management in the Hudson Valley is very real, and has rightfully created a population of concerned and engaged citizens. Sustainable Materials Management Inc.'s commitment to environmental health and safety is unwavering and is at the basis of our core mission. We can only hope that our facility will pave the way for the expansion of responsible and sustainable materials management in this region.
