NYC Does Require Recycling But How Do We Improve Enforcement?

NYC requires bars and restaurants ( and all businesses in fact) to recycle.The requirements are here:  http://www.nyc.gov/html/nycwasteless/html/recycling/businesses_what.shtml So how do they enforce?  They probably don't but have a right to.http://www.nyc.gov/html/nycwasteless/html/recycling/businesses_enforcement.shtml The penalties for not recycling are: $25 for first time, $50 for second, $100 for third, and $500 for four or more (within 6 months). You can report the non-recycling at 3-1-1 or online athttp://www.nyc.gov/html/dsny/html/contact/requests_comm_recycling.shtml Perhaps we can investigate enforcement? Perhaps we can give citizen reporters a reward by giving them a piece of the fines($20 for the first one, $30 on the second, $50 on the third, and $250 thereafter)?
