June 28, 2022On-Demand Virtual Course: Planning for Waste Management: DSNY’s New Rule for Residential Buildings
New residential buildings over 150 units in New York City now need to submit a Waste Management Plan for DSNY review at the same time as they submit plans to DOB. Hear from DSNY how the process works, and what they need to see in a plan. Walk through a sample plan and learn how to reduce the heap of trash bags typically set out on sidewalks. See case studies of how architects have applied best practice strategies to effectively separate recycling and food waste, reduce the volume of waste and ensure efficient waste management for building staff.
This course takes content from the AIANY webinar that took place on May 20 and adds more content. This includes how to use the Zero Waste Design Guidelines calculator for 150% storage volume, as well as further case studies and Q&A from event attendees.
This free online course offers 1 LU/HSW CEU with successful completion of the online quiz.
