Asphalt Green is one of the community's most valuable resources, but the health of the facility and more importantly, the health and safety of the children and adults who use it, are threatened by the City's plans to build a massive 2-acre, 10-story garbage dump in the heart of our facility.

Pledge 2 Protect released a landmark report, "Talking Trash: A Modern Approach that Protects Communities, Increases Recycling and Reduces Costs," assessing the attainability of New York City's Solid Waste Management Plan (SWMP) goals and highlighting its negative citywide environmental, health and cost effects. The groundbreaking report cites many sources and newly acquired data from several studies conducted by Gladstein, Neandross and Associates and presents the new administration with environmentally sustainable policy alternatives to the SWMP. The report shows that the current system is antiquated, relying largely on waste transport and calls for the city to refocus the SWMP on reducing, recycling and reusing waste.
Asphalt Green commissioned Gladstein, Neandross & Associates to better understand the impacts from the diesel trucks and tug boats. The City can save money, cut emissions and preserve borough equity by scrapping the MTS and cleaning up commercial trucks.

Making the voice of the 31,000 NYC children who play at Asphalt Green heard.
The dangers of the East 91st Street Marine Transfer Station are terrifying. With the dump, they could be our reality. Endangering children is never the right answer.
We are aggressively fighting this project to ensure the public understands that the health of the 31,000 children who play at Asphalt Green is at stake. In August 2013, Asphalt Green launched an advertising campaign to alert the community on the potential dangers of the MTS.
