DO YOU HAVE QUESTIONS ABOUT THE BAN ON FOAM CONTAINERS OR OTHER RECYCLING CONCERNS?
NYC food service establishments can no longer offer, sell or possess single-use foam food containers such as takeout containers, trays, packing peanuts, etc. The NYC Department of Sanitation (DSNY) will be conducting free, educational site visits at local businesses in our district on May 14 and 15! The purpose of these visits is to provide information on the NYC Foam Ban, recycling, and other NYC regulations. This is an opportunity to ask questions and learn about reducing waste and avoiding violations. Want to get on the list for a visit? Send your business name, address and a contact name to us here, and put "DSNY Visit" in the subject line. To learn more, please visit nyc.gov/dsnybusinessresources.
