Download Copy of Proposed Rule (.pdf): 

Local Law number 38 for the year 2015, as codified in Section 24-163.11 of the Administrative Code, requires the Department of Environmental Protection (“DEP”) to promulgate rules requiring heavy duty trade waste hauling vehicles to operate using the best available retrofit technology.

This proposed rule sets forth DEP’s determinations as to precautions that must be used to comply with the requirements of Section 24-163.11. The goal of this proposed rule is to reduce particulate matter emission from the vehicles by requiring controls that will limit the amount of particulate matter emitted into the open air from a heavy duty trade waste hauling vehicle.

This rulemaking is authorized by Section 1043 of the Charter of the City of New York and sections 24-105 and 24-163.11 of the Administrative Code. The proposed rule will add a new Chapter 51 to Title 15 of the Rules of the City of New York.

Matter underlined is new. Matter in [brackets] is to be deleted.

“Shall” and “must” denote mandatory requirements and may be used interchangeably in the rule of this department unless otherwise specified or unless the context clearly indicates otherwise.
