New York City's New Organic Food Law

Posted On: October 26, 2017

New York City passed a new law on July 19, 2016 requiring many food businesses in the area to separate normal food waste from organic food waste. This new law is pushing for a more environmentally friendly approach to waste management. The law pertains to various food businesses including hotels with at least 150 rooms, arena and stadium vendors, food manufacturers and wholesalers. Facilities under the new law's coverage must adhere to strict packaging and food laws requiring that all organic waste be privately digested or composted rather than delivered to landfills.

How Can Your Business Follow The Law?

A great first step to making your business more eco-friendly is to figure out how you would like your organic waste processed. You can either have on-site waste pickup from a private composter, delivery the waste to a composter yourself or process the waste yourself. Another option is to use more eco-friendly food packaging components for your products. Since these packaging options break down easier, there will be less trash taking up landfills and a more positive impact on the environment.

Help your employees understand the benefits of this new law and how they can dispose of all organic waste cleanly and efficiently. Training your employees on proper recycling and composting protocol will not benefit your business as well as the rest of New York City and the world.

The ban is proposed to eliminate large-size sodas and other sugar-sweetened beverages from the city’s restaurants, delis, sports arena vendors, movie theaters and food carts.
“The proposal would also keep restaurants from offering self-service cups bigger than 16-ounces and would impose a fine of as much as $200 per violation.”  Read More online at CBS News.
