Recycle Right New York is an education and outreach effort informed by more than 100 recycling professionals from across New York State. The program provides information and resources to help residents understand how to properly recycle, which in turns supports effective local recycling system processes and generates benefits for communities and the environment (e.g., increases energy efficiency and savings, reduces pollution and greenhouse gas emissions, and creates jobs and a circular economy).
How was the Project Started?
Recycle Right New York is coordinated by the NYS Center for Sustainable Materials Management, which is housed at the State University of New York College of Environmental Science and Forestry and in partnership with the Syracuse University Center for Sustainable Community Solutions. Funding is provided by the Environmental Protection Fund administered by the New York State Department of Environmental Conservation (DEC).
