Next Freshkills Park Talk: Tomorrow, Nov. 29
The Freshkills Park Talks lecture series continues tomorrow evening, at the Arsenal in Central Park, with Martin Bellew, the man responsible for ensuring environmental compliance during the closure of the Fresh Kills Landfill. Mr. Bellew began working for the New York City Department of Sanitation in 1983 and worked his way up to oversee the closure of several of the city’s incinerators and landfills. He will discuss the engineering feats, environmental challenges and daily operations at Fresh Kills that he oversaw during a period that involved major shifts in landfill regulation and environmental policy.
Mr. Bellew now serves as Commissioner of the Department of Parks & Recreation for the City of Yonkers, New York, as well as Deputy Commissioner of Public Works.
