Summary: This bill would increase fines for failures to comply with the law related to commercial waste disposal and posting. It would also increase fines for subsequent violations and would waive the fine associated with a first violation of the posting requirements if the business can satisfactorily show that they had provided for the removal of their waste by a business licensed by the New York City Trade Waste Commission.
