Golden spike announcement #3 for Staten Island trash train


pile-computer-shirt2-200.gif The city announced for the third time yesterday (after similar announcements in 1991 and 2004) that Staten Island’s solid waste will be hauled by train instead of truck, thus reducing traffic and air pollution on the island. Just as soon as they finish building it.

You gotta hand it to DSNY Commissioner Doherty, though. The man must be a bundle of energy, what with his socializing with recycling characters and city officials and enthusiastic media interviews and ribbon-cutting obligations, it’s a wonder he has time to draft long term plans for the city’s garbage. I wonder if he’s on the football team.
