NYLPI Urges Department of Sanitation to Include Waste Equity in Commercial Waste Zone ProposalsDecember 1, 2021
On the day these next steps were announced, NYLPI submitted comments to the DSNY hearing commending the movement towards greater equity while making specific recommendations on how decision-making can maximize the positive impact of Commercial Waste Zones. Policy Director Justin Wood‘s testimony emphasized achieving Zero Waste by 2030 and ensuring all processes are equitable and transparent:
“In addition to aggressively negotiating with the waste companies bidding to ensure that they’re building the right facilities and investing heavily in customer education, we would urge the city and sanitation department to continue to look for ways to ensure that independent and expert waste auditors are available to every commercial customer.”
