Garbage Politics

North Brooklyn is home to a disproportionate number of the City’s waste transfer stations. While the Mayor’s Solid Waste Management Plan would correct this social injustice by distributing transfer stations throughout the five boroughs, many are opposed (including the Mayor’s neighbors on the Upper East Side).

No Impact Man has the lowdown on the latest scheme by Manhattanites to keep their garbage to ourselves – in this case Assembly Members Glick, Gottfried and Rosenthal are trying to keep the legislation off the Assembly floor. Mr. Impact Man has lots of links and lots of good reasons why North Brooklyn residents and everyone else should be calling their Assemblymembers and crying foul. (I would hope that Messrs. Lentol and Lopez are opposed to this, but it is still worth calling about.
