We all have a tendency to hide some things around the house that can be donated, recycled, or need to be properly disposed of – inappropriate clothes, old electronics, old paint cans. The NYC Department of Sanitation (DSNY) is here to help!
Storing things you don’t use takes up valuable space and can bring happiness to others. Other things like chemicals and cleaning products can be dangerous to your health and our environment-and don’t just throw them away with your trash!
Find out where you can donate, recycle, or dispose of your items using DSNY search tool, How to Remove (nyc.gov/HowToGetRidOf).
Recycling and proper disposal of harmful products is the law, and will help keep NYC clean, safe, and healthy.
