As of January 2015 it would be illegal to throw anything away in NYC. They have slowly phased out the sanitation department over the past few years. First nothing containing paper, wood. Then anything containing plastics and glass. Then anything metal. Now it’s anything electronic.
Which more or less means everything.
Whoops, no – potato peels. We can still throw away potato peels, as of now. I don’t want to give them any ideas, but for the time being, I think we could even get away without washing them out first.

Next is outlawing plastic garbage bags. We’ll have to make the bag out of potato peels.December 14, 2014 11:05 pm at 11:05 pm #1049604
Why would you need a garbage bag for some potato peels? Oh, I think I have one more – banana peels. They haven’t yet though of a method/ need to recycle them. So we can all go bananas!!December 14, 2014 11:15 pm at 11:15 pm #1049605SayIDidIt™ParticipantDecember 15, 2014 7:11 am at 7:11 am #1049606barlevParticipant
Sidi is right, having just been in Switzerland, they have garbage rules and garbage police, if you break the law, there is a 1000 frank fineDecember 15, 2014 11:53 am at 11:53 am #1049607barlevParticipant

I’m developing a machine to mash up all electronics into some unrecognizable mush – ready for NYC disposal.
Problem is – what happens when that machine breaks!!December 26, 2014 12:42 am at 12:42 am #1049610profound101Participant
Wondering why everyone is so against recycling…
I read the rules it seems as though the NYC Department of Sanitation is trying to make it as hard as possible for anyone to ever recycle anything. There are so many good models for encouraging recycling worldwide why cant they just adopt one of them?
