Petition to Dump the Dump!

The Marine Transfer Station at 91st St. turns good urban planning on its head, putting a Marine Transfer Station in a densely residential neighborhood instead of an industrial zone. I oppose the site and believe it represents poor policy-making that must be reversed. If you agree, please sign the petition.

We continue to fight the Marine Transfer Station and thanks to your support we’ve already accomplished:

- Brought attention to dangers of garbage trucks in residential neighborhoods
- following tragic death of local resident hit by a garbage truck;
- Moved the ramp one block north to protect 35,000 children from all over the city who play at Asphalt Green in partnership with P2P and the local community;
- Introduced air quality monitoring legislation to protect us from pollution;
- Forced commitments from DSNY under oath to limit use to only 1,800 of the total 5,200 tons per day capacity, keeping more than 300 garbage trucks off our streets;
- Advocated for and secured funding for guardrails on garbage trucks and other large city vehicles;
- Advocated for and won a citywide goal of zero waste to make Marine Transfer-to-landfill obsolete by 2030;
- Exposed high costs increasing from $93/ton to $278/ton for a total price tag of $632 million;
- Built a three borough coalition against garbage dumps in residential neighborhoods.
I look forward to working with residents like you to find new strategies to stop the Marine Transfer Station.
