Law: NYC Administrative Code leaving NYCWasteLess (Title 16, Chapter 3, Subchapter 2, Section 16-308: Yard Waste) and City Council Local Law 77 of 2013 leaving NYCWasteLess

Summary: Local Law 77 amends the NYC Recycling Law to include requirements for DSNY to test a collection system for organic waste for composting or recycling between October 1, 2013 and July 1, 2015. It is voluntary for residents in pilot areas and mandatory for selected schools to set-out organic material during the pilot program. Local Law 77 concurrently suspends residential leaf and yard waste collection across certain neighborhoods of the City that generate large amounts of yard waste (required by Section 16-308 of the NYC Administrative Code), until July 1, 2016.
