A single barge can carry as much garbage as twenty-eight tractor trailer trucks. By building marine transfer stations and barging New York City's garbage, the City can reduce waste related truck traffic in the City by more than 3 million miles annually. Cutting diesel powered truck traffic will improve air quality across the city, cut carbon emissions, reduce traffic congestion, trim maintenance costs for our roads and bridges, and improve quality of life.
