Getting To Zero: NY And Waste
Tuesday, Feb 21, 2017
With the release in April 2015 of the OneNYC Plan, the City of New York laid out an ambitious goal: to reduce to zero the amount of waste that New York sends to landfills by 2030. Like all cities, New York manages a complex system of waste collection, transportation, and disposal -- a vast physical infrastructure that keeps our neighborhoods healthy and thriving.
Getting to Zero: New York + Waste is a yearlong series of tours and public program. It will explore New York's waste infrastructure and ask: how have changing approaches to waste management shaped + reshaped the city over time, as well as what possibilities might a radical shift in the amount of trash we produce, + how we dispose of it, have for our neighborhoods and the future of the city?
