In the good old days of the 70s, where you were trashing everything, now you have to educate and inform about what is trash, and what is not, where hard plastics go or fit in the recycling world.
If you leave in Manhattan within its five boroughs always call 311 it’s kinda hotline for whatever information one may need. If you are a computer wiz, well there are several websites to go to.
Below you will find your wave:
- nyc.gov/CFCRecovery – this site is for ac, refrigerators, and appliances with chlorofluorocarbons
- nyc.gov/refashion (this one is for me)
The site is very easy to navigate, I try myself, you can trash it after you learn a little bit more, and one more reminder, Salvation army also has a pick phone number where you can call and schedule a pickup time, which usually is Wednesdays. Salvation Army is not run by NYC.gov, just thought to share info.
