The infamous Fresh Kills Landfill, a 150-foot-high mountain of waste material in Staten Island, New York, is getting a makeover. That makeover is Freshkills Park, a 2,200-acre park complete with meadows and wetlands. The project is expected to take decades, but a small part may be open within the next few years. Projects like this aren’t new; in fact, landfill redevelopment as parks and recreational areas has been around for a long time. Locally, HSA Golden professionals have been involved in similar landfill projects, including the Evans Street Landfill in Oviedo and the Lake Destiny Soccer Field in Maitland. Such reuse isn’t only smart, it’s incented at both the federal and state level through initiatives such as the Brownfields Program. Read more about the Fresh Kills Landfill HERE.
