Greenmarkets Get Even Greener

We've got loads of great Greenmarkets in New York City, what could make them greener? The Council on the Environment for New York City's rechargeable battery and cellphone recycling, that's what! CENYC is expanding its recycling efforts at select Greenmarket locations by adding collection boxes to recycle old rechargeable batteries and cell phones. CENYC is establishing this program in cooperation with the Rechargeable Battery Recycling Cooperation (RBRC), a nonprofit public service organization that operates the Call2Recycle program.
