This is a huge step forward for NYC reaching its zero-waste goals by 2030. When New Yorkers see that businesses are participating in the recycling of food scraps, they might be more mindful of their own consumption. This will, hopefully, lead to an increase in NYC residents' participation in the city's Brown Bin Organics Collection Program. With both businesses and NYC residents working together to reduce food waste, we will be well on our way to Zero Waste by 2030. I am glad to see that DSNY is leading the way, and I will do my part to help spread the word about New York's commitments toward a sustainable, eco-friendly future.

Is the DSNY going to start cracking down on businesses that don't comply? Will the penalty be more severe for businesses?

I support the expansion of NYC's organics collection for commercial businesses. The current system of commercial waste collection is unsustainable -- it has to change. This expansion is a crucial step toward a functioning 21st century city. Businesses now have an opportunity to shape new systems that work for their business operations, for the customers they serve, and for the communities they operate in and depend upon.

I think it is a great idea to have smaller restaurants and catered parties and retail food stores separate food waste from the rest of the garbage. People should encouraged to do this as well.
