Explore NYC's Garbage Crisis with Recycle-A-Bicycle
About this Map

Summer 1999 students of North Brooklyn Recycle-A-Bicycle Mapmaking program cycled to investigate issues of garbage and waste transfer stations in New York City.

Students chose to chart the city-wide garbage crisis after learning that their neighborhood was a planned transfer site for NYC's residential waste. The map features the middle-school youths' drawings and text, and includes facts and hints for reducing, reusing and recycling in NYC.

"Community people guide us through each neighborhood's problems. We visited landfills, transfer stations, recycling plants, and waterfront neighborhoods and explore solutions."

On this Green Map, you will find ways to reduce, reuse and recycle garbage, as well as examples of green businesses.
