New Requirements for Recycling at NYC Street Events

Our friends at CENYC's Office of Recycling Outreach and Education told us...

This February the City Council passed a law requiring recycling at all street events. Every event producer, manager, or sponsor must ensure that all recyclables are being collected and recycled. They must provide and monitor sufficient recycling receptacles for the duration of the event, gather all recyclables and arrange for their pick up. CENYC's Office of Recycling Outreach and Education has information available for how to comply with this law. We can review your recycling plan, assist you in identifying proper receptacles, assist in volunteer recruitment and training, and help identify recycling opportunities beyond the regulatory requirements where possible. Please contact Rebekah Sale @ CENYC with questions about your event's recycling plan. For more information on recycling at street events and to find out your District Superintendent visit the Department of Sanitation's web site.

Read the law.
