This report, produced by the UDL for the use of the 125th Street Business Improvement District, aims to understand how waste in New York City currently impacts 125th Street. The history of waste on 125th street is considered within the broader context of New York City waste and the industry of waste collection as a whole. The report then highlights key aspects of the City’s current waste system, focusing on potential opportunities for further investigation with the 125th Street BID. The report concludes with recommendations for next steps on compliance, monitoring, and enforcement, reducing waste, reducing truck traffic pollution, awareness, education, and publicity.
