Seems like a pretty massive waste of material.

Agreed. But they contain asbestos, so it's too expensive to utilize them...

Actually, that is incorrect, the so called "Redbird Reef", which is what they call those retired NYC subway cars that they turn into reefs, are stripped of any harmful substances, and put in areas where divers like to frequent.

The areas where the divers like to visit will buy the old cars, which saves New York City from the task of sourcing places to recycle the cars completely, and the dive areas get increased business from recreational divers, and the marine life in the area gets a new habitat that helps improve shelter areas from predators, so it is an all around win, when done right.
