New Developments about the MTS

May 2nd, 2013

Dear Members and Friends of the East 93rd Street Block Association,

The East 93rd Street Block Association is proud to be partnering with a growing coalition of concerned citizens called Pledge 2 Protect.

Pledge 2 Protect’s mission is to stop the city?s plan to build a massive 2-acre, 10-story dump on East 91st Street, and a full-scale garbage route. We pledge to protect the tens and thousands of New Yorkers facing the imminent health and safety dangers imposed by the dump.

We can do this by pledging to support only the politicians who publicly stand with us in opposition to the dump. Please help us to mobilize concerned citizens to hold our elected officials and candidates running for office in the 2013 municipal elections accountable for their positions on this issue, and persuade them to protect the many New Yorkers who will be affected by this misguided, dangerous trash dump.

We strongly urge all of our members and friends to take the pledge to protect our community by signing the petition and joining the coalition.  You can take action and sign the online petition by going to

If we all work together we can stop the dump!
