MAYOR BLOOMBERG'S STATEMENT ANNOUNCING VETO OF COUNCIL'S DISAPPROVAL OF ULURP APPLICATIONS
"The Solid Waste Management Plan that I presented to the Council last year has the support of nearly every major environmental organization in New York City. It takes thousands of trucks off our City's roads and treats every borough in our City equally. Considering that the Council has not presented a credible alternative in the last eight months, I will veto the Council's disapproval of the ULURP applications. We cannot continue to unfairly burden communities with a disproportionate share of our City's waste."
