This lateral expansion included 144.3 acres of new landfill operations (with associated roadways, berms, sedimentation basins, etc.) in the Town of Macedon. The vertical expansion in the Town of Perinton (which WMNY proposed and then withdrew in previous years) is not part of the current project proposal.
