By Council Member Kallos

 

A Local Law to amend the administrative code of the city of New York, in relation to waste collection from nursing homes

 

Be it enacted by the Council as follows:

 

Section 1. Title 16 of the administrative code of the city of New York is amended by adding a new section 16-114.2 as follows:

                     § 16-114.2 Solid waste collection from nursing homes. The department shall provide collection service for solid waste generated by occupants of all nursing homes located in the city in accordance with regulations promulgated by the commissioner. The commissioner may not charge any nursing home a fee for waste collection service. For purposes of this section, “nursing home” has the meaning ascribed to such term in section 2801 of the public health law.

§ 2. This local law takes effect 180 days after it becomes law, except that the commissioner may take such measures as are necessary for the implementation of this local law, including the promulgation of rules, before such date.
