NYC - recycle more, waste less New York City Recycles NYC Department of Sanitation


Choosing a Dry Cleaner

There are many New York City dry cleaners who use alternatives to perchloroethylene and/or promote the recycling and reuse of hangers and plastic dry-cleaning bags

Talk to your dry cleaner about their cleaning and recycling practices. Ask your dry cleaner what options are available to you to clean your particular mix of items. Also, some advise that the best alternative is to avoid buying clothing marked "dry clean only."

To find out more about waste-prevention opportunities for dry cleaners and alternatives to dry cleaning, visit helpful links.
