SECTION 27-0403
Legislative intent
Environmental Conservation (ENV) CHAPTER 43-B, ARTICLE 27, TITLE 4
§ 27-0403. Legislative intent.

The legislature hereby finds and declares that development and
implementation of local programs to conserve energy through sound solid
waste management efforts can be of broad benefit to the state. Through
utilization of resource reuse and other programs, primary raw materials
can be conserved, energy savings can be gained, the amount of waste
disposed of in landfills can be reduced, and, through proper management
of the waste stream, improved operations at waste-to-energy facilities
may be realized. In recognition of the potential benefits to be accrued
from implementing sound solid waste management programs, the legislature
hereby declares that a program directed toward enhancing the state's
resource reuse efforts will provide energy, economic and environmental
benefits for New York state.
