Not in Our Backyard: Protest Over New Trash Facility
Description:Brooklyn leaders are calling for the Department of Sanitation to trash its plans for a new garbage transfer station in Gravesend Bay.
It’s a battle that’s been composting since 2006 when the City Council overwhelmingly approved a plan to build the new facility right behind the Caesar’s Bay Shopping Center in Bensonhurst.
Sunday the groups rallied to try to stop the project after a federal study found high concentrations of toxins at the bottom of the bay.(2:35)
