Sierra Club Opposes Expansion of Hazardous Waste Facility in Niagara County

Sierra Club Niagara Group is opposed to the expansion of Chemical Waste Management (CWM) Hazardous Waste Site in the towns of Lewiston and Porter in Niagara County.

The commercial facility located on a 710 acre site, treats, stores and disposes of hazardous waste and industrial non-hazardous waste.  For nearly 40 years, the residents of Niagara County and the nearby Great Lakes have been unduly burdened with the only hazardous waste landfill capacity in the state.

Help Stop the Expansion: No more hazardous waste should be brought into our community!

Attend the Public Hearings:
Wednesday, July 16 at 1:00 pm and at 6:30 pm in the auditorium of the Lewiston-Porter High School at 4061 Creek Road (Route 18) Youngstown, NY [Map]
