Ulster County Resource Recovery Agency (RRA)

The Ulster County Resource Recovery Agency (RRA) is a private company that serves a public purpose. In 2019, the RRA drafted a 10-year plan that they were about to submit to the NYS DEC for approval.  The ToUC.org offered comments on the plan, some of which were included in the RRA final plan submitted to and approved by DEC.  We have had at least three letters to the editor published in the Daily Freeman on RRA. Subsequently, the RRA engaged in a spat with the Ulster County Legislature about RRA’s own plan of what a “zero waste” goal means.  Instead of pursuing a zero-waste management program, their activities focused on finding a site for a local landfill which was not even on the list of objectives in the final plan.  As of mid-March 2021, the RRA’s leadership is in a state of flux.
