January 10, 2014 -- Partnership for Working Families

The New Yorker writes about the environmental and social benefits of ALIGN and the Transform Don’t Trash New York Coalition’s plan to overhaul NYC trash pick up.

“Today, New York’s commercial-waste industry is the Wild West,” Matt Ryan, the executive director of ALIGN, said. “We have all these different companies competing for business on the same blocks. It obviously keeps costs low, but it drives down wages and safety standards for workers.”
