New Recycling Regulations - Effective June 1, 2011
Plastic containers coded 3 through 7 have now been added to Westchester County’s list of mandated recyclables. Previously, residents were only required to recycle plastics coded 1 and 2. Beginning June 1, 2011 residents must recycle plastics coded 1 through 7. This includes most personal care and food packaging waste, such as beverage containers, milk jugs, medicine and shampoo bottles, yogurt cups and take-out food containers. Do not put plastic bags in your bin; these should be brought to retailers that are required by law to collect and recycle them.
