De Blasio signs bills to end ‘environmental racism’ by curbing waste transfer stations in some neighborhoods

The amount of trash being handled at private transfer stations in North Brooklyn will be cut by 50%, and by 33% in the South Bronx and Southeast Queens. Due to zoning rules, those neighborhoods became home to an outsized number of the transfer stations, where trash is delivered to be trucked out of state, after the closure of the Fresh Kills Landfill on Staten Island — which for a century was stuck with nearly all the city’s garbage.
