Regional Waste Movement Study

Truck moving Waste

With changes in waste disposal, the transportation of MSW and C&D debris will be even more challenging despite, reductions in waste production due to higher recycling rates and other efforts. The optimal use of truck, rail, and water modes to accomplish these moves, and the placement of supporting facilities and infrastructure, are important regionwide transportation issues. This study will build on work already accomplished and identify multimodal transportation opportunities for waste movement at a regional level and is recommended in the Freight Element of NYMTC's Regional Transportation Plan.
