ARTICLE: Recent bird strikes renew opposition to trash station

Flocks of birds do not coexist well with airplanes and unfortunately, trash stations attract major flocks of birds. Fortunately, there are zoning laws that are designed to assure that incompatible uses and good public policy would mandate that zoning boards NOT authorize the locating of dumps near an airport.

Recent bird strikes, Captain Sullenberger’s miraculous landing in the Hudson, an April 19 Delta, an April 24 Jet Blue flight from HPN, and the April 24 flight with Vice President Biden & Secretary Clinton, should make any responsible person in authority to find good cause not to authorize a trash station anywhere proximate to an airport.

NY please do not allow a trash station near LGA; your citizens and all passengers will appreciate your wisdom.
