NYC-EJA is leading efforts to reform NYC’s commercial waste sector as part of the Transform Don’t Trash NYC coalition. This is part of our ongoing campaign to address solid waste and the impacts of dozens of waste transfer stations on a handful of low income communities of color throughout New York City.
NYC-EJA’s groundbreaking research addresses climate change impacts on industrial waterfront communities. Our advocacy has resulted in updates to NYC waterfront regulations and innovative strategies to build climate resilient industrial waterfronts while promoting local industrial jobs.
