The Oneida-Herkimer Solid Waste Authority (the “Authority”) is a public entity and, as such, complies with New York State’s Freedom of Information Law [FOIL].

The FOIL requires that agencies respond to a request for records in five (5) business days by either providing access to the records, denying access, or by stating when the Authority will make a determination on the request.
The Authority may charge a fee for photocopying and/or reproduction of the requested material.
In the event a request is not handled in a timely manner or where a requestor disagrees with the determination to withhold certain records, the Authority established a FOIL Appeals Committee to address and carryout the appeals process.
