A very common sight in New York City - giant piles of trash lining the streets, patiently waiting along with their rat friends for pickup day. What is in these bags? Where do the contents go? How much do they weigh? How are they sorted?
This tool allows users to view the amount of trash generated that particular month in each community district in each of the 5 NYC boroughs. I sourced the Monthly Tonnage Data API from NYC Open Data, provided by the Department of Sanitation, New York City. It will be updated monthly.
