New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg has begun releasing details of a comprehensive plan to handle the city's commercial and residential waste now that the Fresh Kills Landfill on Staten Island has shut down. The part of that plan dealing with commercial waste involves sending that waste through a marine transfer station on the west side of Manhattan. Much of that waste now goes through the Bronx and Brooklyn. The city also plans to impose more stringent operating conditions on commercial transfer stations in order to cut down on pollution, odor and truck traffic.
