Doing some cleaning?  Help make sure clothing and other textiles are reused or find a second life as insulation, carpet padding, and more - don’t put them in your regular recycling bin.

Check with your local municipality or recycling coordinator to learn more about alternate textile recycling methods in your area. #RecycleRightNY

Keep food scraps

Compost Awareness Week is in May

Food scraps are valuable, but not in your household recycling bin.
Composting organic materials, such as food scraps, reduces the amount of waste that ends up in landfills or at combustion facilities. However, food scraps put in household recycling bins can actually ruin valuable recyclables and those equally valuable food scraps are lost as well. #RecycleRightNY and send food scraps to the soil, not your recycling bin!
