The Manhattan Solid Waste Advisory Board

The Manhattan Solid Waste Advisory Board (MSWAB) is a volunteer citizens’ advisory board dedicated to helping NYC achieve its zero waste goals. We advise the Manhattan Borough President, City Council, City Administration and others on policies and programs regarding the development, promotion and operation of the City’s waste prevention, reuse and recycling programs. We are a Board comprised of solid waste management industry, waste reduction and diversion consultants, sustainability professionals, and concerned citizens, appointed by the Manhattan Borough President’s Office. We produce two grant programs: the NYC Community Composting Grant and the NYC Reuse and Repair Grant, hold monthly meetings, provide information online about waste reduction and diversion in NYC, and have a number of active committees, all of which are open to the public.
