This law proposes to redirect waste now disposed of at certain transfer stations to other disposal facilities located in the City.  As the voice of the restaurant industry, the Association urged the Committee not to support Intro. 495.


“While it seems that this bill has good intentions, it amplifies the problem it seeks to solve,” said Chris Hickey, Regional Director NYC of the New York State Restaurant Association. “This law simply moves garbage from one place to another which will only exacerbate the problem and cause the loss of jobs in the process.”
