Statement of Basis and Purpose of Rule

 

Section 16-130(b) of the Administrative Code of the City of New York authorizes the Sanitation Commissioner to establish one or more classes of permits for solid waste facilities that receive, process, and store materials consisting of solid waste and recyclable materials.  In addition, section 16-463 authorizes broad oversight over recycling processing facilities that handle paper and cardboard, metal, glass and plastic, as well as scrap metal, including refrigerant containing items. Some facilities operating in New York City limit their operations to the receipt, process and storage of recyclable materials. 

 

 

Currently, recycling processing facilities are either registered or permitted by the New York State Department of Environmental Conservation as source-separated non-putrescible solid waste recycling recovery facilities or licensed by the New York City Department of Consumer Affairs as scrap metal processors.  A recycling processing facility is defined as a facility where recyclable materials, other than organic waste, are delivered separately from solid waste or where source-separated recyclable materials, other than organic waste, are processed for the purpose of reuse or sale. Section 16-463 authorizes the Department to provide broad oversight of facilities that handle such materials and to promulgate rules that regulate such facilities. 

 

This rule requires recycling processing facilities to register with the Department and allow for the inspection of site operations to ensure that recyclable materials are effectively processed and accurate records are maintained to capture the flow of recyclable materials handled and processed within the facility.  To further this goal, recycling processing facilities will be required to submit quarterly reports to the Department summarizing the handling of such materials within the target period.  This will allow the Department to more accurately determine the recycling diversion rate within New York City. 

 

 

 

DSNY’s authority for these rules is found in sections 753 and 1043(a) of the New York City Charter and sections 16-130 and 16-463 of the New York City Administrative Code.
