WEBINAR — Fracking Waste in New York: A Business Perspective

June 8, 2015: 1:00PM to 2:00PM
To Attend:

While achieving the fracking ban was a major victory, further action is needed to protect New York’s sustainable economic drivers from the impacts of continuing disposal of oil and gas waste.

Did you know NYS has accepted over 500,000 tons of fracking waste from Pennsylvania since 2010? Did you know that NYS law specifically exempts waste from the oil and gas industry from the definition of hazardous and industrial waste? Did you know that NYS allows low-volume oil and gas extraction waste to be spread on our roads for de-icing and dust control?

Register for this free webinar, hosted by Riverkeeper and the New York State Sustainable Business Council to learn more about the facts on gas and oil field waste disposal in New York, the implications for New York businesses, and what you can do to protect your community.
