Get ready to trick-or-treat! The October newsletter from the Council on the Environment of New York City (CENYC) has some great ideas for making your Halloween more eco-friendly:
- Help kids to make their own crafty trick-or-treat bags using paper bags instead of store bought plastic bags or plastic pumpkins. Remember to put paper bags and scraps in your recycling bin.
- When you're finished showing off your costume, you can bring it to one of our weekly textile recycling collections.
- Compost your jack-o-lantern in your home compost bin or bring it to a compost drop-off site sponsored by local community groups and gardens.
