Town of Macedon
Dumping began on the Town of Macedon side of the county line in 2017. The Town of Macedon sponsored the NYC Rail Spur project, and approves the annually-renewed closure of Perinton Parkway. The Macedon approval of the High Acres Eastern expansion will lead to an additional 30+ years of dumping in Wayne County.
