New York generates 11,000 tons of waste everyday. To double to recycling rate to 30 percent by 2017, New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg launched the “Recycle Everything” campaign earlier this week.
“The bottom line is we can do an awful lot better,” he said. “This saves us money and it dramatically makes the environment that our kinds are going to inherit from us better. It’s kind of hard to argue that you shouldn’t do this.”
A few dominate programs will include residential composting, electronics recycling and plastics recycling.
