Recycling and Composting

Reduce, Reuse, Recycle and Composting also including Product Stewardship

New York Recycles Symbol

At home, work and school, New Yorkers generate a lot of trash - and it's a mixed bag. We are making too much trash - over 4.5 pounds per person per day in NYS! We need to get out of the habit of throwing trash into one receptacle with cans, bottles, paper, garbage, banana peels, etc., all mixed together. Many of the items we are throwing away can be reused, recycled or composted, such as paper, glass, aluminum, metals as well as potato and carrot peels.

New York has approximately 30 landfills accepting approximately 6 million tons per year waste from across the entire state. We also send 2.5 million tons to Waste-To-Energy (WTE) facilities and export 6.1 million tons to neighboring states, in 2008.

What Should We Really Do With Our Trash? For starters... Reduce, Reuse, Recycle and Compost! As much as possible

It is just a matter of learning new habits. Reduction, reuse, recycling and composting our trash will benefit all of us, our communities and our environment. Besides, it is the law!!!!!!

Solid Waste Management Act of 1988

In the Solid Waste Management Act of 1988, the Legislature established our State Solid Waste Management Policy. The following are the solid waste management priorities in New York State:

(a) first, to reduce the amount of solid waste generated;

(b) second, to reuse material for the purpose for which it was originally intended or to recycle material that cannot be reused;

(c) third, to recover, in an environmentally acceptable manner, energy from solid waste that can not be economically and technically reused or recycled; and

(d) fourth, to dispose of solid waste that is not being reused, recycled or from which energy is not being recovered, by land burial or other methods approved by the department (from New York State Environmental Conservation Law 27-0106.1).

Waste reduction, reuse, recycling and composting has great benefits including:

  • energy savings;
  • pollution reduction
  • reducing the ultimate volume of waste requiring disposal in landfills and WTE facilities;
  • fostering an environmental ethic among c

he City does not collect medical trash except for syringes used in a residence. 

Used syringes and lancets (also known as "sharps") must be properly packaged and labeled and may be brought to any hospital or nursing home in New York State, which are required by law to act as collection centers. In addition, various local pharmacies and healthcare providers participate in the voluntary sharps collection program.

If you are not using a sharps disposal program, place properly packaged and labeled sharps containers in the regular trash. Never place sharps containers in a recycling bin. 

Disposal of all other medical waste must be arranged through a licensed hauler.
