Recycling

Mayor Gerald D. Jennings & Commissioner D’Antonio Announce:
Single Stream Recycling

The city of Albany has announced it has converted to a single stream-recycling program. Single Stream means residents, who participate in the city’s waste collection and recycling program, no longer need to sort their recyclables.

All recyclables including glass, metal, aluminum containers, #1-7 plastic containers, paper, and cardboard can be placed in one recycling bin.
Whether it is a blue or green bin residents can place their recyclables loosely in either bin.

“This initiative is a positive investment in our City’s future and will have a strong impact on both the economy and the environment,” said Mayor Gerald D. Jennings.

Commissioner Nick D’Antonio said, “ It is our hope that single stream recycling will increase participation once residents see how truly easy it is to recycle. “It’s recycling made easy”.

If a resident does not have a bin, bins are available, free of charge, at the following location:


Dept. of General Services, 1 Conners Blvd.

And for a limited time only:

200 Henry Johnson Blvd.
Dept. of Recreation, 7 Hoffman Ave.
Bleecker Stadium, Clinton Ave.

*Proof of residency required
