This tool allows you to see how NYC's residential recycling breaks down among marketable materials. Estimates are based on a waste characterization study carried out in 2004 and 2005 that examined the composition of residential paper recycling, residential metal/glass/plastic/beverage carton recycling and residential refuse set out for collection.
To use this tool with the Annual or Monthly diversion statistics, enter the tonnage of Paper and/or MGP recycling in the appropriate boxes in the Worksheet below.
After completing the Worksheet, click on "Measure my impact!" to see the Results for the materials indicated. (Note: If you make subsequent changes to the Worksheet, click on "Measure my impact!" again to recalculate the Results.)
