FRESH KILLS LANDFILL CLOSURE

Fresh Kills Landfill – Wikipedia

The Fresh Kills Landfill was a landfill covering 2,200 acres (890 ha) in the New York City borough of Staten Island in the United States. The name comes from the landfill’s location along the banks of the Fresh Kills estuary in western Staten Island.[1] The landfill was opened in 1947 as a temporary landfill but became New York City’s principal landfill in the second half of the 20th century. It was once the largest landfill, as well as human-made structure, in the world.[2][3]
