Reduce, Reuse, Rethink: The Future Of Waste In NYC

Thursday, Jun 21, 2018

Mayor de Blasio has pledged to send zero waste to landfills by 2030, a formidable goal given that New Yorkers currently generate tens of thousands of tons of garbage each day.

How can Gotham eliminate its trash in just 12 years? Part of the answer lies in redesigning the trip from the trash can to the landfill. However, achieving zero waste also requires fundamentally redefining the concept of “waste.”

Sponsor: The Museum of the City of New York

Speakers: Ana Isabel Baptista, Chair of the Environmental Policy and Sustainability Management program - The New School; Pam Elardo, Deputy Commissioner, Bureau of Wastewater Treatment - NYC Environmental Protection; Christina Grace, CEO + Founder - Foodprint Group; + Tom Outerbridge, General Manager - Sims Municipal Recycling
