Commercial Waste Zones

Jan 9, 2019

The Department of Sanitation (DSNY) is proposing reforms to the commercial waste hauling industry with the intent to implement commercial waste collection zones. This plan would establish a system of geographic zones to contain routes and create a modern, efficient commercial waste collection system. DSNY has released two documents explaining the system and the process the City will take to begin implementing these changes.
