Protesters are demanding that the city stop moving forward on building a controversial waste management plant in Manhattan.
Protestors lined the construction site of the East 91st Street Marine Transfer Station this morning.
Residents say they're concerned the facility will pose health risks and increase garbage truck traffic.
They say the de Blasio administration recently promised to address their concerns, but construction on the plant hasn't stopped.
"We feel that the city is not acting in good faith by going with construction at full blast when we're in talks with them," said protester Dara Hunt.
Meanwhile, the Sanitation Commissioner released a statement almost identical to the one she released last month, saying, “This administration has taken a new approach to implementing the city’s Comprehensive Waste Management Plan, which is guided by a commitment to fairness and borough equity, while also being responsive to air quality, traffic and pedestrian safety concerns of communities in close proximity to marine transfer stations."
