New York City Human Resources Administration

Recycling Program

The New York City Human Resources Administration (HRA) is required to comply with certain recycling requirements specified in New York City rules and regulations. We examined HRA’s compliance with these requirements and found that improvements were needed. For example, 5 of the 14 HRA facilities we audited were not in compliance with source-separation requirements and a Recycling Coordinator was not appointed until January 2009, after the completion of our audit fieldwork and at least five years after the appointment was required. In addition, HRA’s Recycling Plan did not contain all the required elements. We recommended that HRA fully comply with all recycling requirements.
