 AN ACT to amend the environmental conservation law and the state finance
   law, in relation to establishing a carpet stewardship program

   THE PEOPLE OF THE STATE OF NEW YORK, REPRESENTED IN SENATE AND  ASSEM-
 BLY, DO ENACT AS FOLLOWS:
 
   Section  1. Declaration of legislative findings and intent. The legis-
 lature finds and declares that it is the policy of the state of New York
 to promote the recyclability of products and materials  and  to  promote
 policies  that encourage the optimal goal of closed-loop recycling and a
 circular economy. The legislature finds  and  declares  that  the  solid
 waste management plan adopted by the department of environmental conser-
 vation  on December 27, 2010 entitled "Beyond Waste, A Sustainable Mate-
 rials Management Strategy for New York State" promotes  and  supports  a
 system   of   sustainable   solid  waste  management  and  favors  waste
 prevention, reuse, and recycling over the  disposal  of  materials.  The
 legislature  finds  and declares that in the solid waste management plan
 product stewardship was identified as a centerpiece  of  the  new  solid
 waste  management plan for the state, and carpet was one of the products
 identified as most suited to a stewardship approach  based  on  research
 and  feedback  from  stakeholders.    According  to  the  report, carpet
 accounted for 1.4 percent of total solid waste generation  in  New  York
 state,  or  roughly 512 million pounds.  Carpet waste is heavy and bulky
 and imposes significant solid waste management  cost  on  municipalities
 because  it  is  expensive  to  dispose  of.  The  legislature finds and
 declares that perfluoroalkyl and  polyfluoroalkyl  substances,  or  PFAS
 chemicals,  which  are harmful to humans are increasingly being found in
 household products, including carpets produced by  major  United  States
 carpet producers. The legislature further finds and declares that reduc-
 ing  the  toxic  components  in  carpet will not only reduce exposure to
 toxic chemicals in our homes and workplaces,  but  also  improve  market
 
  EXPLANATION--Matter in ITALICS (underscored) is new; matter in brackets
                       [ ] is old law to be omitted.
