What You Can Recycle at the Curb

The Bureau of Sanitation issues blue containers for recycling. The following are items that can be placed in the recycling container:



DO NOT RECYCLE THESE ITEMS

If these items are placed in the blue container, there's a likelihood of contaminating the other clean materials. Please ensure that the items placed in the blue container are clean and free from contaminants.


To dispose of the hazardous materials please call:
1-800-98-TOXIC (1-800-988-6942)

 

Q.

Why doesn't the City collect some items that are recyclable, and even have the recycling emblem stamped on the bottom?

A.

Although many materials are indeed recyclable, City recycling centers cannot accept some of these materials because they have no current market value. So, if recycling centers can't find a place to sell the materials, they will end up taking the materials to the landfill at an additional cost, which is passed on to the City.

For further information, please call the Bureau of Sanitation Customer Call Center at
1-800-773-2489.
