Let's keep it up, Bedford!
Westchester County recognized the Town of Bedford with an Eco Award for our stellar recycling in 2017!
Changes to Single Stream Recycling
Please note the temporary changes to Single Stream Recycling due to China's recent announcement that it will no longer import much of the world’s recyclables. This has caused instability in the global market for these materials and while this is in flux, the Materials Recovery Facility (MRF) where our recyclable materials go for processing has modified what will be accepted.
However it is important to note that the majority of materials we have been recycling ARE still accepted. Please continue to recycle your plastic containers, glass, aluminum, clean paper, cardboard and more!
NO LONGER ACCEPTED: Plastic bags, thin film plastic, Seran wrap, bubble wrap, candy/chip wrappers, wax paper, liner bags and similar materials.
