Educational Resources

NYC is transforming the commercial waste removal industry and Industrial Carting is here to help. 

Since the passage of Local Law 199, Industrial Carting has been working with customers, local business improvement districts, community boards and elected officials to educate and inform them about the law’s content and intended benefits. We are committed to educating our customers to maximize their contribution to the circular economy and reduce the overall environmental impact.

Commercial Waste Zone Outreach

About Commercial Waste Zones
  • In 2019, officials passed Local Law 199 requiring the establishment of Commercial Waste Zones throughout New York City.  The city wide program creates 20 geographic zones, each serviced by up to three waste companies.  Customers will need to comply with new contracting, billing and environmental regulations.
  • The Commercial Waste Zones (CWZ) program will create a safe and efficient commercial waste collection system that advances the City’s Green New Deal and zero waste goals while providing high-quality, low-cost service to NYC businesses.
  • Industrial Carting specializes in the Brooklyn West zone and looks forward to becoming one of its three authorized waste service providers.  
  • Contact us to find out what zone you are in.
CWZ Education & Outreach
  • Since the passage of Local Law 199, Industrial Carting has operated an education campaign to ensure Brooklyn West businesses, Business Improvement Districts (BIDs), Chambers of Commerce, local Community Boards, and local elected officials all understand the changes to the way commercial waste will be managed. Local officials continue to look to Industrial Carting as the expert on this topic.
