Westchester Alliance for Sustainable Solutions (WASS) is a county-wide effort to move our communities to Zero Waste and make Wheelabrator-Peekskill obsolete.
Our focus is to educate Westchester municipalities about the dangers of trash incineration and the ease and importance of adopting alternative solutions.
Peekskill, NY is an environmental justice community that is home to the Wheelabrator facility that burns most of Westchester County’s trash. It is the largest source of air pollution in the county, the health impacts of which are harming Peekskill and neighboring communities.
Join us to stop this environmental racism and find solutions that don’t hurt our people an our environment!
