FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE - Brooklyn, NY – June 30, 2023 - Brownstonebin, a leader in innovative waste management solutions, is providing access to its rat-proof trash containers designed specifically for restaurants. This state-of-the-art product responds directly to Mayor Adams’ June 28, 2023 announcement mandating that all New York City food-related businesses put their trash in secure containers.

The new rule, effective July 30, 2023, requires that all restaurants, supermarkets and bodegas use containers for their trash in an effort to combat New York City's rat problem.  "Today, we take giant steps towards the goal of clean streets by announcing new rules to containerize trash in our city that, once finalized, will cover 25 percent of businesses and result in 4 million pounds of trash getting disposed of in secure bins each day," Adams said.

The key feature that sets Brownstonebin apart from other trash containers is its lockable and rat-proof, all-aluminum construction.  The containers are highly durable and come with a five year warranty. In addition, they are easy to install, are customizable and environmentally friendly.  Most importantly, the Brooklyn-designed trash containers are consistent with the new rule announced by the Mayor which requires a secure, lockable container, like BrownstoneBin.
