According to the DSNY’s latest Waste Characterization study:
68% of New York City’s trash should actually be recycled.
This means we either don’t know enough, or don’t care enough! Whatever the reason may be, Recycle Buddy wants to do our part to change this.
We hope our recycling bins, armed with in-your-face alarming facts, raise awareness, spark conversation, and encourage our city to engage and consider recycling in creative and informative ways.
