The New York City Council is reviewing a bill this week that could require New York City businesses, including restaurants, stores, office lobby buildings and other public buildings, to place recycling and composting bins alongside trash bins.
In addition to that bill, Councilman Ben Kallos will introduce a bill that would require New York City to set a goal of sending zero waste to landfill by 2030.
New York Daily News has more details:
Businesses would have to offer up recycling and compost bins alongside their trash cans under a new bill set to be introduced in the City Council this week.
The legislation introduced by Councilman Ben Kallos would cover stores, restaurants, office building lobbies and all other public buildings where New Yorkers now often only have the option to trash paper and plastic items that could be recycled.
