New Recycling Regulations Affecting NYC Businesses

Since 1992, all businesses in NYC have been required to separate recyclable materials from garbage. In early 2016, the Department of Sanitation (DSNY) clarified the business recycling rules as part of the Mayor's "0x30" initiative to eliminate all landfill waste by the year 2030. Beginning in the summer of 2016, every NYC business will be required to comply with changes to these rules and ensure to their best ability that recyclable materials are properly handled by their private carter. Additionally, certain large entertainment- and hospitality-focused businesses will be required to separate food waste (called "organics") from garbage for on-site composting or off-site processing by their private carter. Businesses can save money and avoid fines by complying with the new rules.

  • Learn how to avoid fines, hire a private carter, and reduce environmental impact by visiting the ZeroWaste business resources page of the DSNY website.
  • Find out if your business is covered by the business organics rules.
  • Request a free educational site visit by emailing commercialprograms@dsny.nyc.gov. Be sure to include “Site Visit Request” in the subject.
