Imagine a city where trash can be collected at a velocity faster than the state-posted speed limit. Its been happening on Roosevelt Island since the 1970s when Envac from Sweden first installed pneumatic garbage tubes and if their lobbying efforts are successful, this vacuum style system could be coming to a neighborhood near you. Forbes reports that the company is currently in talks with just about everyone in NYC—”agencies, neighborhood groups and private developers”—about installing their technology that’s capable of whisking away refuse at 60mph without any loud, smelly, garbage trucks barreling through the streets or getting stuck in them when there’s a blizzard.
