Food Donation and Food Scrap Recycling is Now the Law

New York’s Food Donation and Food Scrap Recycling Law went into effect on January 1, 2022. The law requires businesses and institutions that generate an annual average of two tons of wasted food per week or more – such as supermarkets and universities – to donate excess edible food and recycle all remaining food scraps if they are within 25 miles of an organics recycler (composting facility, anaerobic digester, etc.). Learn more about guidance for businesses and institutions establishing a food donation assistance program; food scrap recycling; and exemptions under the law.
