Doesn't really matter, recycling is city law

It's been city law to seperate and recycle for some time now. (Never mind that much of the sorted trash winds up going all to the same dump; just more NYC nonsense.)

The Sanitation department can issue fines against a building owner or an individual occupant for breaking its regulations. So it really doesn't matter what the lease says, nor what actually happens to the rubbish. NYC says you must recycle, and so you must.

: My most recent renewal lease (stabilized apartment, NYC) asked me to sign a "recycling" clause affirming my responsibilities under the law for trash disposal. It was hard for me to tell whether it was a simple affirmation of my existing responsibilities or if it added new responsibilities.

: Has anyone encountered one of these? Any comments?
