City Council introduces plan to reduce garbage truck traffic in Mott Haven
The City Council recently voted down the mayor's plan to ease truck traffic and tons of garbage dumped in the Bronx. On Wednesday, however, they introduced their own plan. Council members say the plan will cut down on truck traffic through Mott Haven and require each borough to deal with their own garbage by opening four trash sites in Manhattan. Council members insist their plan would save the city money by getting rid of 50,000 tons of trash produced every day. City Council Majority Leader Joel Rivera, who voted for the mayor's plan, says City Council's plan isn't as good as it looks.
