DSNY's new waste containerization policy goes into effect for food businesses

Starting this week, New York's Department of Sanitation requires that “all food-related businesses must set out any putrescible solid waste, including refuse and organic waste, at the curb for private carter collection in rigid receptacles with tight-fitting lids.” That means food service establishments can no longer pile bags of trash on the sidewalk if they contain materials that rot or decay rapidly. This is part of the DSNY's on-going efforts to make garbage less accessible to rodents and stop the spread of rats.
