Welcome to the Queens Solid Waste Advisory Board Organizing Committee (QSWAB). The QSWAB includes a diverse group of Queens residents, business owners, civic leaders, and advocates who care about how waste affects our borough and share the goal to support efforts that move our City to a future in which waste is viewed as a resource rather than a nuisance and where no waste is wasted. Our group is committed to waste equity and racial justice. After three years of advocacy, our group will transition from an informal group into a formal one recognized by new Queens Borough President Donovan Richards. To apply to join the new QSWAB, submit an application here by the February 26th deadline.
Although we recognize it is ambitious, we support New York’s goal to send zero waste to landfills through reduction, reuse, recycling, and redesign practices.
Our group previously met at locations across Queens with all meetings open to the public. We now meet over Zoom due to COIVD-19. To join our group and be notified of future meetings, please email us at queensswab2019 at gmail dot com.
