Bring your biz to the "new" NY.
Well, if your business requires the removal of construction debris from a customers home.
You might want to reconsider.
As of July 15th.
NY State now requires that all vehicles that haul any kind of debris from a job site get a "haulers permit".
And all debris must go directly to an official collection site(in my county that's 3)
Now on large projects.
I would plant a dumpster and have it picked up at conclusion.
The carter would dump it at one of the 3 sites.
So no real difference right?
I'm contracted to supply/install 250 Sq. Ft. of new hardwood flooring.
I must first remove the customers old carpet and pad and haul it.
Before this law kicked in, I would transport this to my warehouse for eventual pick up for recycling.(carpet and pad are 2 of 4 items we have contracted out for recycling. The other 2 are wood and adhesives.)
Can't do that now.
That carpet and pad must either be:
A) Directly transported to an authorized Waste Disposal Facility.
The county does not have the ability to recycle any thing other then paper/glass/plastic/metal.
So this C & P that would have previously been recycled now is landfill.
Each load will incur a dumping fee (We still can't get a definative dollar ammount on this)
B) Debris stay on site and home owner places it with household garbage to ultimately end up as landfill.
So, I pay more to run my business.
My consumers pay more.
The recycling content of my waste goes from 25% to 0.
But the state/county make millions from permits/dumping fees.
Friendly for Business my ass.
Come for the free roads.
