Waste Management Plans for Certain Buildings

New York City Department of Sanitation (DSNY) is proposing to revise the rules to require certain buildings to submit aBuilding Waste Management Plan.”

Who will submit the “Building Waste Management Plan”?

Owners and/or managing agents of certain new or altered residential multiple dwellings.

Who will be affected? (Does this action apply to me?)

  • Any new multiple dwelling building that contains 150 or more dwelling units,
  • Any commercial building that is altered, enlarged or otherwise modified from its original physical design in order to be classified by DOB as a multiple dwelling building that contains 150 or more dwelling units,
  • Any commercial building with 50 percent or more of its floor area renovated in order to be classified by DOB as a multiple dwelling building that contains 150 or more dwelling units.

What must the Waste Management Plan (WMP) include?

The WMP must include some basic information about the contacts and the size of the property as well as more technical information such as sanitary storage plans for certain types of waste, separation and collection procedures, compliance confirmation and DSNY collection data.

Submitted building waste management plan has to include design drawings that are submitted to the DOB.

Where Can I find DSNY’s rules?

Title 16 of the Rules of the City of New York.

What is the timeline for applying?

Building waste management plan must be submitted to the Department no later than when plans that include design drawings are submitted to the Department of Buildings or the effective date of this rule, whichever is later.
