Fresh Kills Landfill

Back in 2012, a documentary was made by the Borough President’s Office spotlighting the work that has gone into converting the Fresh Kills landfill into a vast and beautiful parkland.

With the 15th anniversary of the closing of Staten Island’s Fresh Kills Landfill coming up next week, we thought it was the perfect time to share the above documentary. The film, which focuses heavily on the closing of the “Staten Island Dump” also takes a look forward to Freshkills transition from landfill to parkland.
