About Us

Residents for Sane Trash Solutions, Inc. (SaneTrash) is a volunteer community-based organization made up of people just like you! The organization’s purpose is to oppose the City’s horribly misguided plan to build a 2 acre, 10-story marine transfer station at East 91st Street that will harm Yorkville/East Harlem, and to promote a discussion regarding sane trash solutions.

When we started out, we were a few people working together to get our message out through a three-pronged strategy which included legal, lobbying and community outreach. SaneTrash has grown to over 7,000 supporters. We applaud Pledge2Protect’s efforts and we share the same goals, yet we are two separate organizations.
