A Local Law to amend the administrative code of the city of New York, in relation to exempting licensed plumbers from registering with the business integrity commission

 

Be it enacted by the Council as follows:

Section 1. Subdivision b of section 16-505 of chapter one of title sixteen-a of the administrative code of the city of New York is amended to read as follows:

b. It shall be unlawful for any person to remove, collect or dispose of trade waste that is generated in the course of operation of such person's business, or to operate as a trade waste broker, without first having registered with the commission.  Nothing in this subdivision shall be construed to require registration with the commission of (i) a commercial establishment required to provide for the  removal  of  waste pursuant to section 16-116 of this code in order for such establishment to remove recyclable materials generated in the course of its own business to a  location owned or leased by such establishment for the purpose of collecting or storing such  materials for sale or further distribution; (ii) an owner or managing agent of a building in order to remove recyclable materials generated by commercial tenants within such building to a central location within such building for the purpose of collecting or storing such materials for sale or  further  distribution; [or] (iii) an owner of an establishment required to provide for the removal of waste pursuant to section 16-116 of this code in order to transport beverage containers, as such term is defined in section 27-1003 of the environmental conservation law, or any other  recyclable material generated in the course of operation of its own business, to a redemption center, as such term is defined in section 27-1003 of such law, or to any other place where  payment will be received by the commercial establishment for such materials; or (iv) a master plumber licensed pursuant to section 28-408.1 of this code who is engaged in the removal or opening of the pavement of a public street pursuant to a permit issued by the commissioner of the department of transportation in accordance with section 19-102 of this code. Notwithstanding any other provision of this subdivision, a business granted an exemption from the requirement for a license pursuant to subdivision a of this section shall be thereupon issued a registration pursuant to this subdivision.

§ 2. This local law shall take effect immediately.
