Testimony

The Manhattan Solid Waste Advisory Board was established in 1989. The effort to archive the Board's history here is much more recent. Over the years, the Board has provided testimony to elected officials on a wide range of issues pertaining to recycling and waste reduction in NYC. Past testimony will be added to this page over the coming months. Please check back for progress as the archive continues to grow.
