New York City Starts Lincoln Square Recycling Program

New York City has launched a public space recycling bin program in the Lincoln Square district.

The New York City Department of Sanitation added 22 recycling cans in Lincoln Square, 11 for paper and cardboard and 11 for glass, metal and plastic, according to a news release. The Lincoln Square Business Improvement District (BID) worked with the sanitation department on the program.

The city plans to expand the initiative.

“These newly designed public space recycling containers will ensure that New Yorkers, and the many visitors that come to our city every day, can recycle their paper, bottles and cans while on the go,” said Sanitation Commissioner John Doherty.
