Justin Wood Quoted in The Economist Regarding NYC’s New Waste Container PlanOctober 12, 2023

The new program will affect “765,000 buildings, or 95% of the city’s residential properties” and extends to commercial and street vendor waste, too.
Sanitation is one of the few things that is firmly under municipal control, unlike the MTA (which runs the subway). So the city has a lot of power, says Justin Wood of New York Lawyers for the Public Interest.
