The Fresh Kills facility on Staten Island, a former landfill slated to become park land, reopened on September 12, 2001 to provide an area for investigators to analyze and further search the wreckage of the World Trade Center. During the recovery period, more than one million tons of World Trade Center material were transported by truck and barge to the Fresh Kills Landfill for sorting.
