Pols rally against Review Avenue waste transfer station

By Steve Mosco

Elected officials stood with local residents June 26 protesting the city Department of Environmental Conservation’s approval of Waste Management of NY’s proposal to modify the existing Review Avenue transfer station to increase the facility’s activity.

The increased amount of locomotive activity and subsequent increases in noise and air pollution are the main concerns of area residents, according to local elected officials including state Sen. Joseph Addabbo (D-Howard Beach), state Assemblyman Mike Miller (D-Woodhaven), City Councilwoman Elizabeth Crowley (D-Middle Village) and Sen. Michael Gianaris (D-Astoria).
