Wasted Opportunity? Confronting NYC's Solid Waste Challenges

Tuesday, Dec 6, 2011

Did you know that New York City ships 10,500 tons of residential waste to out-of-state landfills every day? That adds up to nearly 27 million miles a year -- all on large, long-haul trucks that spew massive amounts of climate-warming emissions into our air.

New York City is lagging behind other major cities in adopting new solid waste management technologies, even as our current system grows ever more expensive. Isn't it time for the Big Apple to rethink its solid waste management strategy and chart a course for a more sustainable future?
