Marine Transfer Station
Council Member Garodnick continues to object to the City’s plan to open a marine transfer station at 91st Street. The proposed site would process as much as 5,280 tons of garbage per day, which would greatly increase traffic of garbage trucks through the East Side.
The Army Corps. of Engineers is conducting a study to review a permit request and mitigation plan by the City’s Department of Sanitation. So far, they have indicated that they do not have the data necessary to complete this study, and as such, the City should not move forward with a request for proposals (RFP).
"This site continues to be inappropriate for a garbage station," said Council Member Garodnick. "How the City can move forward with an RFP before the Army Corps. of Engineers has concluded its inquiry makes absolutely no sense."
