Recent events have led many New Yorkers to realize the value of public space and start reimagining city streets. As the Transportation Alternatives 25×25 Challenge states, “It is time to make a fundamental shift in what purposes our public space serves, and ensure that the New York City of the future is built for people, not cars.”

Today’s pedestrians navigate around piles of refuse and recycling that take up significant sidewalk space and attract rats. It is time to design better solutions for setting out waste for collection. This panel brings together a group of designers, waste advisors, and City officials for a conversation focused on solutions, including the City’s Clean Curbs pilot program.
