Pollution Prevention Law

Organization(s) New York State Dept. of Environmental Conservation
Project Description A law was recently passed in NYS that promotes the concept of pollution prevention and mandates an increase in pollution prevention and environmental compliance assistance, including on-site technical assistance to small businesses.

In addition, the law requires a Pollution Prevention and Environmental Assistance Coordinating Council to be convened. This Council is compromised of representatives from the DEC and four other state agencies. The Council has convened, has prepared By-Laws, and has also prepared an interagency integrated work plan. The Council is currently meeting with Trade Associations to seek their assistance in developing direction and priorities for Council outreach programs and assistance activities.
