About This Site

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.

This site is a project of the following members of the Transform Don’t Trash New York City coalition (list in formation):
ALIGN: The Alliance for a Greater New York
Joint Council 16 of the International Brotherhood of Teamsters
New York Lawyers for the Public Interest

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.
