Assembly Speaker Sheldon Silver appointed Assembly Member Alan Maisel as the new vice−chair of the New York State Legislative Commission on Solid Waste Management, established in 1984 to evaluate solid waste management practices in New York State.
“The commission has an extensive history of studying and bringing to the forefront many critical issues relating to the recycling, reuse, reduction, collection and environmentally−sound disposal of solid waste,” stated Maisel. “I believe that it is imperative that the state continue to aggressively develop policies that minimize the generation and disposal of solid waste, through improved opportunities for recycling and reuse of materials.”
“While urban, suburban and rural areas often have different solid waste management concerns,” stated Maisel. “I believe that this commission can help to bring all of these issues into focus for the legislature. Further encouragement of recycling and reuse to limit our need to landfill or incinerate solid waste is an issue of particular significance to me.”
