The NYC Department of Sanitation does not supply bins or bags for recyclables (or refuse).
For curbside recycling setout, any rigid containers can be used, as long as they are 18-32 gallon capacity, have lids, and are properly labeled. (Cardboard boxes are not acceptable curbside recycling containers.) Plastic bags for recycling must be CLEAR, 13-55 gallon capacity.
There are no specific requirements for receptacles used to collect recyclables inside your building.
You can purchase recycling bins and bags from most hardware stores, home improvement centers, office supply stores, janitorial suppliers, department stores, supermarkets, and drug stores. Or search the internet for "recycling bins".
Rubbermaid Recycling Containers with NYC Lids
Grainger and Rubbermaid worked with DSNY to offer containers and lids in NYC's recycling program colors with slits and holes, labeled with NYC logo.
Agencies and Institutions log in to order recycling containers with NYC lids directly from Grainger through New York State Office of General Services contracts. Find out more (PDF). See Recycling in Agencies and Institutions for info on what and how to recycle.
Schools can order bins and bags through their standard contracts: custodian engineers through the Department of Education FAMIS system (or through Grainger's catalog with Under-$10,000 P.O.), principals through the Staples catalog. See Recycling in Schools for more info on school recycling.
