Mays May 2, 2018 It was an idea whose time had come: New York City, with the blessing of Mayor Bill de Blasio, would insure that “easily accessible A.T.M.s” be placed at the city’s criminal courthouses to facilitate cash bail — a move designed to help reduce unnecessary detention at Rikers Island. The proposal came in 2015, and by March of this year, the Mayor’s Office of Criminal Justice said the mission had been accomplished: A.T.M.s were now “in all courthouses.” Yet a spot check of the city’s five major criminal courthouses revealed that there is no A.T.M. or, at best, limited access to one, at courthouses in the Bronx, Staten Island and Queens.

On this Earth Day, the 8.6 million people living in 3,46 9,925 New York City households will produce 24 million pounds of garbage, a little under three pounds per person. That’s the daily average of what 10,000 Sanitation workers pick up on their runs through city streets. But the garbage isn’t really garbage anymore. A third of the waste is recyclable, and not in complicated ways like it used to be. Paper and cardboard go in green bins; metal, glass and plastic go in blue bins. Another third is food and other organic refuse like soiled napkins, paper towels and pizza boxes; that’s part of growing (pun intended) organic waste composting program using brown bins. The remaining third, called black bag, is what’s left; it includes everything from diapers and sanitary supplies to razors and pens. And plastic bags. Recycling used to happen on the fringes.

The enthralling transformation is on display every day at the city’s … [Read more...] about A virtuous cycle: New York City’s impressive recycling present, and what the future should hold for plastic bags
