It takes all sorts of smelly, burdensome, and even dangerous facilities to make the city run. How does New York City decide where to put all those things that no one wants in their backyard? To get the scoop, our Urban Investigations crew in the Bronx hit the streets and interviewed sanitation workers, environmental justice advocates, an anti-waste-facility neighborhood group, policymakers, policy-shakers, and Fritz Schwarz, the father of the 1989 Fair Share legislation that tried to spread the burden more evenly throughout the City.
Is Fair Share working? The crew collected their knowledge nuggets into this book that is helping community groups and others to find out how Fair Share works now, and how it could work better in the future!
