Zero Waste Pledge

Become part of the solution! Pledge Zero Waste!

About a third of New Yorkers' waste can be recycled through the City’s curbside recycling program; another third can be recovered through the City’s organics programs; and another 10% (textiles, electronic waste, harmful household products, and plastic bags) can be diverted through donations and take-back programs!

Instead of sending trash to a far-away landfill or incinerator, pledge to reduce, reuse, and recycle!

I pledge to:

To support my Zero Waste Pledge
