When Fresh Kills Landfill on Staten Island closed in 2001, DSNY shifted to a truck-based system to cart waste from the city to distant landfills. The Hamilton Avenue MTS is a key part of the city’s 20-year Solid Waste Management Plan that reactivates marine transfer sites to shift waste handled by DSNY to a rail- and marine-based transportation system, dramatically reducing air pollution caused by truck-based transport.
Join us for a tour, led by DSNY guides, that will explain how innovative environmental technologies and architectural sensitivities come together to create state-of-the-art infrastructure. Learn the surprising intricacies of municipal waste management with a tour of this complex and cavernous space.
