Event Recap: Sonya Chung, NYLPI Staff Attorney, Environmental Justice, Spoke at City Hall About Skip the StuffDecember 12, 2022
NYLPI Staff Attorney Sonya Chung spoke at the public hearing about the bill, which was attended by advocates and residents to demonstrate support for the bill.
“This bill will reduce the massive amount of waste that New York City generates and help private waste haulers meet the waste reduction goals of Local Law 199 of 2019, all while sparing consumers from receiving items they do not want in the first place. Importantly, reducing our City’s single-use plastic waste will help alleviate the pollution burden on the Environmental Justice communities where the waste ends up, as well as the Environmental Justice communities where plastic is produced.”
