ABOUT THIS SITE: For decades, owners of private waste companies have done their best to avoid scrutiny of their employment practices and environmental impact by regulators and the general public. The mission of Trash Kingpins of New York is to bring transparency and accountability to the for-profit waste industry in New York City.
WHAT’S NEXT? The good news is that reforms of NYC’s commercial waste system are underway. These have the potential to reduce emissions, drive up recycling, improve customer service, reduce community impacts and strengthen labor standards.
