What and Where Can I Recycle?



Recycling has significant benefits, even if it isn’t a perfect solution to our environmental problems. Recycling conserves resources and saves landfill space, energy and water. Adopting the 3Rs of waste management (Recycle, Reduce, Reuse) has a huge impact on protecting the environment. Additionally, the EPA reports that it has a substantial economic effect through the creation of jobs and increased tax revenues.

The majority of citizens are willing to recycle, but are often frustrated. What is and is not accepted for recycling differs in towns, cities and states. Indeed, each of our local transfer stations has different recycling guidelines. Remember the slogan: ‘Know Before You Throw.” Post a list of accepted recyclable items near your trashcan and recycle bin to remind family, friends and visitors.

 

Below is a summary of our local transfer station guidelines. For further recycling tips, check out https://recyclerightny.org/ and https://www.earthday.org/7-tips-to-recycle-better/.
