Summary: The law governing Commercial Waste Removal, originally enacted as Local Law 42 of 1996, established the Trade Waste Commission (TWC) to regulate the private waste carting industry requiring them to be licensed or registered with the City, and to comply with the recycling laws. The Rules define price caps, designated and non-designated recyclable materials, collection requirements and restrictions, and reporting requirements for private carters.
Amendments: Local Law 21 of 2002 amended the NYC Charter such that the TWC was replaced by the Business Integrity Commission (BIC) as the entity in charge of the trade waste industry regulation including development, update, and enforcement of the Rules.
