What is the NYS Disposal Ban?

If you’re a business located within New York State, you may have experienced the need to dispose of your company’s e-waste effectively and efficiently.

Under the NYS Disposal Ban, you have several legal options available to you.

In this article, we’ll walk you through what the NYS Disposal Ban is and what you need to know for your business to dispose of its e-waste.

Let’s get started!

What is the NYS Disposal Ban?

According to the NYS Department of Environmental Conservation, as of January 1st, 2015, consumers and businesses were no longer allowed to dispose of certain electronic equipment in landfills, waste-to-energy facilities, in the trash bin, or curbside for trash pickup.

In other words, recycling in an environmentally responsible manner is required when disposing of electronic waste items. These items can include your business’s computers, small-scale servers, and small electronic equipment.

You can learn more about the NYS Disposal Ban on the NYS Department of Environmental Conservation’s (NYSDEC) website.
