NYC’s Recyclable Universe Expands

The Brooklyn Heights Association reminds us that New York City’s list of recyclable materials has been expanded to include all “rigid plastics,” a category that includes:

plastic bottles, jugs & jars, rigid plastic caps & lids, rigid plastic food containers (yogurt, deli, hummus, dairy tubs, cookie tray inserts, “clamshell” containers, other plastic take-out containers) rigid plastic non-food containers, rigid plastic packaging (“blister-pak” and “clamshell” consumer packaging, acetate boxes), rigid plastic housewares (flower pots, mixing bowls, plastic appliances, etc.), bulk rigid plastic (crates, buckets, pails, furniture, large toys, large appliances, etc.)
