Bottles are easy to find. It seems as if no one recycles in NYC. I’ve heard rumors that there is single stream recycling but looking around the city I know that there is a lot of trash that never makes it to a recycling center.
I heard that NYCHA does not recycle at all. Word on the street is that they pay a fine for not recycling because it is cheaper than actually instituting a real recycling program.
It’s a missed opportunity because NYCHA could lead by example. If the housing projects could recycle then any neighborhood could follow.
