Solar Powered Paper Recycling Bins in Manhattan

pic_Pratt_Ron_Myles_Jennie On Tuesday, July 16, CoRR member Pratt Industries announced their donation of 16 solar powered paper recycling bins to the Downtown Alliance Business Improvement District.

The bins are Lower Manhattan’s first ever street-level paper recycling program, to serve the 16,000 people who live there, the 310,000 people who work there, and about 11 million tourists each year.

The paper from these will be taken to Pratt’s mill in Staten Island to be processed into new paper. We applaud Pratt Industries for making these bins available, and for reprocessing NYC’s paper right here in the City.
