Katonah, Recycling

Your Recycling Questions Answered

What gets recycled at the Bedford Recycling Center? Watch this video and Nick will tell you what to do with Styrofoam, clothing, cardboard, cans, glass, paper and plastics if you live in the Katonah or Bedford area. Apparently the Recycling Center, which is located at 301 Adams Street, Bedford Hills, NY, is the place to be on Saturday mornings. This morning there was a line of cars waiting to get in.

In addition to the information that Nick tells you in the video, here are two more waste-reducing tips:

Compost! If you don’t already compost your food waste, start now. Food waste is generally between 12 and 40% of an average household’s waste. Check out The Lower East Side Ecology Center’s info on home composting and community compost collection projects.

Re-use hangers: Take your hangers in to The Greener Cleaner in Katonah.

Kid Incentive: If you have children, offer them a financial incentive to reduce your household’s waste. It will teach them a good work ethic, build their awareness (and your’s too) of how much waste we generate, and get them involved in cleaning up the environment.
