b. The department shall report annually the total amount of household hazardous waste diverted by the program established pursuant to subdivision a of this section.  Such report shall specify each category of material and the amount of such material collected at each collection event or site established pursuant to subdivision a of this section.  Such report shall be included as part of the department's annual recycling report required pursuant to subdivision k of section 16-305 of this chapter.
c. The commissioner shall study opportunities to establish additional household hazardous waste collection events and sites, as well opportunities to provide for the collection of household hazardous waste at designated sites on a regular basis.  The commissioner shall report on such opportunities to the mayor and the council within two years of the effective date of this section, and annually thereafter, and such report shall be included as part of the department's annual recycling report required pursuant to subdivision k of section 16-305 of this chapter.
§2. This local law shall take effect immediately.
