According to a new analysis by NYLPI and Transform Don’t Trash NYC, the private sanitation industry in NYC has not improved its recycling performance despite new city rules clarifying which materials must be sorted for recycling at commercial businesses.

NYLPI and other advocates continue to gather evidence that private waste haulers may in fact be landfilling materials designated for recycling under city law.

Read the press release and the coverage in the New York Daily News and Waste Dive.
