GrowNYC Presents: New York City Plastic Recycling Made Simple

NYC now recycles even more! As of April 23, 2013, the NYC Department of Sanitation accepts more kinds of plastics for recycling. 



Our instructional video for plastic recycling, produced in 2009, does not reflect the additional plastics now accepted for curbside recycling and has been removed from our site.  Please visit NYC Recycles for the most recent information and check out individual videos below for tips on recycling metal, glass, cartons and mixed paper. 


 

We are thrilled to announce construction is moving along and we are so close to opening the doors to our new public home, Project Farmhouse.

  • Greenmarket

    Our network of farmers markets, Youthmarkets, Fresh Food Box pick-ups, and Greenmarket Co. ensures that all New Yorkers have access to the freshest, healthiest local food.

  • Recycle

    We blanket the five boroughs with resources like textile and food scrap collection, Stop 'N' Swaps, and free training to make waste reduction easy for all.

  • Garden

    We build and rejuvenate community & school gardens in all 5 boroughs, and support even more gardens through volunteer days, technical assistance, school garden grants, & more.

  • Teach

    We foster future environmental stewards by providing 60,000 children each year with programs that provide meaningful interactions with the natural environment.
