From the Daily News:
An aviation safety group is suing to block a garbage transfer station near LaGuardia Airport, fearing the trash would lure fowl and cause bird strikes.
The Friends of LaGuardia is calling on the state Department of Environmental Conservation to revoke or suspend the permit it issued the city for the North Shore marine transfer station several hundred yards from the runways.
The lawsuit, filed in Queens Supreme Court, blasts the state for its "unlawful, arbitrary, capricious" refusal to take back the permit.
"It's a magnet for birds and it's going to create potential for disasters," said the group's lawyer, former Deputy Mayor Randy Mastro.
Mastro called the potential transfer station a "graver danger than anything we've ever seen in the city before."
