Mayor Madden Announces Appointment of Solid Waste Advisory Board Members



Mayor Patrick Madden announced the appointment of eight individuals to serve on the City’s Solid Waste Advisory Board. The board will assist the City’s Recycling Coordinator in the research, development and implementation of a solid waste management plan that will guide Troy’s waste management practices over the next decade, including alternative environmentally friendly initiatives to reduce costs associated with solid waste disposal.

Mayor Madden said “With the imminent closure of regional landfills, the City of Troy is taking an active role in finding new ways to reduce our solid waste impact through the development of alternative solid waste practices and expanded recycling opportunities. Troy’s Solid Waste Advisory Board will play an essential role in this important process, and I am confident these dedicated volunteers will provide valuable insight and expertise throughout the remainder of this year and beyond.”
 
Board members were selected based on their knowledge and prior experience pertaining to sustainability and recycling, and desire to serve their community in a volunteer capacity. The Solid Waste Advisory Board will convene later this month, and will continue to meet throughout the remainder of the year to complete the City’s solid waste management plan prior to the conclusion of 2018.  As the plan will encompass a 10-year timeline, the board will account for recommended alternatives to the City’s current solid waste management practices, including implementation of green initiatives like composting and expanded single-stream recycling while accounting for population changes and neighborhood growth.
 
The work of the Solid Waste Advisory Board is part of the Administration’s ongoing efforts to promote sustainability, renewable energy, and environmental preservation initiatives. Mayor Madden recently announced the completion of the first phase of the City’s 2.1 megawatt solar network, which includes over 6,700 solar panels across six locations within and outside Troy, including at the former municipal landfill located in South Troy. Additionally, the City announced it will add an additional 2.6 megawatt solar array at the landfill site – including the addition of 8,000 solar panel modules – by the end of 2018. Upon completion, the combined output of the entire Troy solar network will provide over 40 percent of the City’s electrical energy needs.
