Law Protects New Yorkers and the Environment by Ensuring Proper Handling of Hazardous Mercury
A new law signed by Governor Andrew M. Cuomo will require manufacturers to collect and recycle mercury-containing thermostats at no cost to consumers, New York State Department of Environmental Conservation (DEC) Commissioner Joe Martens announced today. The law implements a statewide thermostat product stewardship program to ensure that hazardous mercury is properly handled, preventing potential adverse health effects and damage to the environment.
Governor Andrew M. Cuomo today announced that a critical improvement project to the Binghamton-Johnson City Joint Sewage Treatment Plant, damaged in 2011 by Tropical Storm Lee, will move forward thanks to a $30.32 million loan package from the state for plant repairs, improvements and protection against future storms, including a flood wall around the plant.
