Eastern Rensselaer County Solid Waste Management Authority (ERCSWMA)
ERCSWMA was formed around 1990 when all of the local land fills were mandated by NYSDEC to close. The Authority provides a way by which member towns and villages can dispose of their solid waste and recyclables and hazardous waste at a reasonable cost. ERCSWMA hires a Director to oversee daily opeartaions. Each member town or village appoints a representative to the Board that oversees the Authority. ERCSWMA also runs the Community Warehouse in Hoosick Falls where used items are recycled and made available for resale to the general public.
