Williamsburg/ Greenpoint Organization United for Trash Reduction and Garbage Equity
Fighting for trash equity and environmental justice for the Williamsburg and Greenpoint community.
Organizations United for Trash Reduction and Garbage Equity (O.U.T.R.A.G.E.) is a coalition of more than two dozen community and civic groups dedicated to environmental justice and the reduction of Waste Transfer Stations and Waste Truck Traffic in the communities of Williamsburg and Greenpoint. These communities currently process 40% of New York City's solid waste adding to the burden of waste truck traffic on our neighborhoods’ streets and poorer air quality for our residents. OUTRAGE members advocate for a more equitable and sustainable solid waste management plan in the City of New York. OUTRAGE is committed to the principle of fair share, as written into the New York City Charter, and calls for all boroughs to accept their appropriate share of solid waste processing. To meet this mandate, OUTRAGE works to ensure timely implementation of the 2006 Solid Waste Management Plan.
