Statement of Basis and Purpose

On August 12, 2013, Mayor Bloomberg signed into law Intro. No. 893-A, which was designated as Local Law No. 57 of 2013 (LL 57). This law created a new chapter in Title 16 of the Administrative Code of the City of New York, Chapter 4-D, which established several new violations related to the bulk collection of recyclable containers using motor vehicles.  ECB then conducted its rulemaking process, and amended its Sanitation Penalty Schedule to reflect this new law.

The manner in which the rules were promulgated during the last rulemaking process unintentionally did not make clear whether certain violations applied to vehicle owners.  The proposed technical change in the rule will restore the intended purpose of the law to apply to vehicle owners.

ECB’s authority for these rules is found in Chapter 4-D of Title 16 of the Administrative Code of the City of New York and Sections 1043(a) and 1049-a of the New York City Charter.
