In case you did not know this … and it turns out alot of people were not aware … Westchester County made a change to their recycling regulations and as of June 1, 2011, now requires all municipalities and private trash haulers collect plastics coded 1 – 7 for recycling. For specifics on the Do’s & Don’t of Plastic Recycling in Westchester here is a Quick Reference Guide …

If you are living in an area that continues to limit the plastics that may be recycled Preserve Products Gimme 5 Program provides drop off locations for #5 plastics at all Whole Foods Markets and some local food co-ops.
