Playing with Garbage
November 14th, 2007

The move by several Manhattan members of the State Assembly to block a recycling station on the Gansevoort peninsula and so derail Mayor Michael Bloomberg’s solid waste management plan serves as a reminder that garbage in New York is an issue that never goes away. It just keeps piling up.

How would you solve the problem? Gotham Gazette has just released The Garbage Game, which lets you decide what the city should do. How much will you recycle? Will you cave in to NIMBYism? Would you truck waste across the river—or ship it across oceans?

We’ll be compiling results and relaying them to the powers that be at City Hall. So play the game and comment here to let us know what you think.
