In response to my post on Monday, Recycling Outreach Coordinator Christina Salvi from the Council on the Environment of New York City sent some informative, in-depth information about plastics recycling. See the links below recommended by Christina:

For some information on plastic recycling in NYC:

For a little more detail on NYC vs. other cities, you can read this analysis on NYC vs. Seattle:

If you would like to know more about the issues related to plastics recycling there is a lot of info out there like http://www.ecologycenter.org/ptf/misconceptions.html and http://discovermagazine.com/2009/jul-aug/06-when-recycling-is-bad-for-the-environment.

Thank you Christina!
