Hearing transcript

Adopted rule summary:

On November 17, 2023, Mayor Eric Adams signed into law Local Law No. 151 of 2023 (Local Law 151). Local Law 151 reduces the regulatory burden on businesses. It reduces penalties and gives more business owners extra time to cure violations. These reforms were a part of the Mayor’s Small Business Forward Initiative.

This rule codifies certain provisions contained in Local Law 151. Specifically, it simplifies the signage requirements for businesses regarding the collection of organic waste. It also makes technical amendments relating to the enforcement provisions that are specifically enumerated in §16-324 of the New York City Administrative Code related to the enforcement of solid waste recycling provisions. Finally, the rule includes some minor plain language edits.
