NYS Food Donation & Food Scraps Recycling Law Update

Effective Jan. 1, 2022, businesses and institutions that generate an annual average of two or more tons of wasted food per week must donate excess edible food to the maximum extent practicable and recycle all remaining food scraps if they are located within 25 miles of an organics recycler with capacity (e.g. composting facility, anaerobic digester, etc.).

View list of Designated Food Scraps Generators (DFSG) and their requirements for compliance with the law.
