[Adopted 9-30-1992 by L.L. No. 7-1992]
The Board of Trustees of the Incorporated Village of Manorhaven hereby declares its intent to comply with the mandate of § 120-aa of the General Municipal Law by adopting a local law to require the source separation and segregation of recyclable or reusable materials from all other garbage or solid waste.
All solid waste which has been left for collection or which is delivered by the generator of such waste to a solid waste management facility shall be separated into recyclable or reusable components for which economic markets for alternate uses exist, consistent with this article and the legislative determination of the municipality, if any, which, by contract or law, possesses the authority to regulate such matters in the village. Components herein include, without limitation, paper, glass, metals, plastics and garden and yard waste. "Economic markets" refers to instances in which the full avoided cost of proper collection, transportation and disposal of source-separated materials is equal to or greater than the cost of collection, transportation and sale of said material less the amount received from the sale of said material.
