Prevent Needless Litter

How many times do you walk to your brownstone at night and see ads from the grocery store all over your stoop? There are tons and tons of ads that get placed all over the city which in most cases are a waste of paper. The New York City Department of Sanitation today reminded property owners across the city that starting August 2nd, enforcement will begin of Section 397-A of the New York State General Business Law, a.k.a the "Lawn Litter" Law, which allows property owners to post a sign in a visible area in front of their homes to let advertisers know not to place unsolicited advertising material on their property.

When you do get these ads, make sure to recycle them with your paper. Remember their slogan - "If you can tear it, we can take it"

Download the sign (needs to be laminated). You can also get one through Park Slope Civic Council
