The transportation, storage, disposal, sale or use of toxic waste from fracking operations has been banned in many counties in New York State. These laws generally include prohibitions on the acceptance of fracking waste at landfills or water treatment plants, and the purchase or use of "ice treatments" and other road surface materials that use highly contaminated water from fracking operations.
