‘Waste’ to ‘Waste- not’ through the changed perception of waste and effective waste
management.

Our Waste at Sunset Park: 15% of New York City’s Municipal soild waste.

Non- organic Municipal Solid waste from all of New York city’s now upgraded waste transfer
stations.
This waste will be brought into sunset park by the use of the Barge and from here it will be
internally managed along the newly activated tram line.

Program strategy :

Creating community awareness about waste through the medium of
Schools, Public Libraries and Streets.

Providing Eduation and Training in waste management and
technology for the residents of Sunset Park, using Brooklyn Army
Terminal as a centre for these educational facilities.

This will then enable the residents of Sunset Park with skills to now
work at the Waste Management facilities along the Industrial water
front.

Thus revitalising the Industrial Waterfront and
opening up new opportunities for Sunset Park.
