Welcome to the Queens Solid Waste Advisory Board (QSWAB)! QSWAB is made up of a diverse group of Queens residents, business owners, civic leaders, and advocates who are committed to working towards a more greener, cleaner, and more equitable future.
We serve and volunteer as an advisory board to the Queens Borough President Donovan Richards Jr., city & state local elected officials, community boards and those interested in topics related to solid waste.
We support the goal outlined in OneNYC to send zero waste to landfills by 2030 through reduction, reuse, recycling, and redesign practices. Our group previously met in-person, with all meetings open to the public. We now meet over Zoom due to COVID-19. To register for upcoming meetings, please visit this page. All meetings are open to the public and will be live-streamed on QBPO Press YouTube channel.
