Based on the current regulations of commercial transfer stations as mandated by Local Law 74,
the study will evaluate the need for changes in the regulatory system. Some issues to be addressed are that as noted
in the Preliminary Report, there is no single comprehensive system for recording data on commercial waste generation
in the City. The study will assess the means and effects of limiting privately owned putrescible commercial waste
transfer capacity. Marine Transfer Stations and commercial waste stations in Community Districts will be analyzed.
The Department of Sanitation is responsible for managing all of the waste generated in the City and for developing a Comprehensive Solid Waste Management Plan for all waste generated between 2004 through 2024. The department developed the Commercial Waste Management Study to enable the City to assess and plan for the management of the commercial waste stream, to minimize the adverse impacts on the City's communities and environments, and to assist in developing the new plan.
These recycling flyers, created by the Department of Sanitation for the City of New York, aim to teach citizens how to properly recycle. The flyers depict the appropriate items that fall under the mixed paper & cardboard category and the bottles, cans & foil category.
