Every building in New York City is required by law to recycle — including every residence, school, city agency, institution, and business.

The NY Department of Sanitation provides regularly scheduled curbside and containerized refuse and recycling collection services for residential households, public schools, public buildings, and many large institutions in New York City.

Commercial businesses must make arrangements with a private carter for refuse and recycling collection.
