There’s no “away” when we throw garbage into a can or litter basket.
Trash goes into landfills, where it decomposes – sending methane, carbon dioxide and toxins into our air, soil and water.
0X30 minimizes this: By contributing zero waste to landfills by 2030, New Yorkers will be protecting our environment more than ever before.
Have you witnessed someone transporting garbage in a vehicle, and dumping the material in the street, or in a park or lot?
