There are many ways for White Plains residents to recycle

Recycling many of our every day items is mandatory in Westchester County.

The City of White Plains is pleased to present many options to our residents to make recycling easy - and yes, sometimes it can be an enjoyable experience.  The overall goal of these pods and sheds is to exponentially decrease the tonnage of items that would enter the waste stream when they are thrown out as trash.  At the same time, provide residents with items that are still in good usable condition.

A Destination In Itself!  The Gedney Yard is not a dump; it is a recycling facility that temporarily stores a wide variety of items that are ultimately recycled in various ways.

RECYCLING DROP OFF AREAS Located in the Gedney Yard

Co-mingled / Paper / Electronics Recycling Pods

  • Bottles, cans and jars and plastics (numbered 1-7)
  • Newspapers, magazines, cardboard
  • Electronic Items such as radios, TV's, VCR's and cell phones  
  • Yard Debris (grass clippings, brush, small twigs, leaves)

Textile Recycling Pod

Drop off any fabric that is clean and dry.  The City is partnering with TransAmerica, a textile recycling company that either redistributes the fabrics or up cycles them into other uses, rather than sending them to landfills.

Soles for Souls

The City of White Plains has collected more than 25,000 pairs of gently worn shoes and this non profit company, Soles for Souls collects these shoes and redistributes them to parts of the world where they have none.  This partnership pays off in two ways:  by providing shoes to those who need them ... and by keeping all of those shoes out of our landfills.

Take It or Leave It (TILI) Shed 

One person's trash is another's treasure.  Drop of your gently used household items such as dishware, bicycles, radios, etc. for another family to use.  They do not accept any stuffed toys, pillows or fabric furniture.  

The TILI Shed is run by Eco Neighbors - a volunteer organization located in White Plains.
