City residents get 105 new chances to recycle

By Jason Fink

New Yorkers will now have more chances to recycle, thanks to a city program that will put an additional 105 recycling bins in 33 new public places throughout the five boroughs.

The bins – green for newspapers and magazines and blue for bottles and cans – will be placed mostly in parks and at busy intersections. The Sanitation Department will pick them up during its regular routes."All new locations are in areas heavily trafficked by pedestrians," Mayor Michael Bloomberg said at a news conference this morning.

The city paid about $50,000 for the bins.
