The Wrong Bin, a documentary about New York City’s recycling program, reveals the environmental and economic costs the city faces when its residents recycle poorly.
In The Wrong Bin, Emmy nominated filmmaker Krishnan Vasudevan, exposes the ever-increasing environmental and economical costs New York City incurs when its residents recycle poorly. Since 2002, when the city closed the Fresh Kills landfill and began sending all of its trash out of state, the city’s annual land filling bill has doubled from $600 million to $1.3 billion a year. This amount could be drastically decreased, however, because nearly 36% of the 2 million tons NYC sends to land fills each year is recyclable.
Featuring interviews with experts in the field, The Wrong Bin reveals many issues revolving around the poor recycling habits of NYC residents, the people those bad recycling habits really affect, and why it is necessary for NYC to get better at recycling as a whole.
