These items are the most commonly observed mistakes in the program.

A Message From Property Management

85 Broad Street continually strives to be environmentally responsible.

Per NYC business recycling law, management at 85 Broad Street is required to notify tenants annually about the recycling and the waste management policies of the property. 

85 Broad Street has retained the consulting services of Diverse Recycling Solutions, LLC (Diverse) to ensure the property’s waste management and recycling program and practices are practical and compliant.

85 Broad Street along with Diverse has implemented a Single-Stream Recycling program in which all CLEAN recyclables (glass, metal, plastic, paper and cardboard) can be collected together in clear (or blue) bags for removal from the property. Garbage (food, coffee cups, food wrappers, fast food packaging, paper napkins, etc.) must be disposed of in labeled bins with black liners. 

Sample Decals For Your Garbage & Recycling

The Law

NYC recycling laws are enforced by NYC Department of Sanitation inspectors. They reserve the right to conduct lawful inspections at reasonable times to ensure compliance with NYC recycling laws and cannot be denied entry. Civil penalties are imposed for any violation of provision § 16-324 of the administrative code of the city of New York.

 

Section § 16-324 provides for a civil penalty in the amounts of:

  • $100 for each violation cited upon a first visit, 

  • $200 for each violation committed after being cited for violations on one prior visit within a period of twelve months, 

  • $400 for each subsequent violation committed after being cited for violations on two separate visits within a period of twelve months. 

 

Violations are issued separately for each instance of non-compliance observed. Thus, multiple violations may be issued concurrently rather than a single violation for overall non-compliance.
