New York City’s recycling program was recently expanded to include rigid plastics.
Although many of you have already been recycling rigid plastics, New York City has officially included any plastic item that is stiff in nature.
Examples of rigid plastics include:
Plastic bottles, jugs and jars Rigid plastic caps and 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 plastic (crates, buckets, pails, furniture, large toys, large appliances, etc.)
We thank you in advance for your cooperation in following these guidelines which will help to improve the cleanliness of the building and safety of both residents and building staff.
