The Dart Industries website lists only 2 sites in the entire state of New York. The Yonkers Recycling Center only accepts material from town residents, (they check your ID) and no commercial waste at all. A private company in Tonawanda, New York; (north of Buffalo, 300 miles from Troy), accepts what they call “Clean Food Packaging”. They state that means nothing that has been “touched by food”.
