Gedney Yard with Commissioner Mignone Video
What does it mean to Go Green? It means becoming more environmentally aware and changing your behavior and lifestyle to reduce the amount of pollution and waste you generate. The decision to Go Green is a gradual process for most people and governments. In White Plains we are committed to moving toward a greener, more sustainable future because we know that any action we take that contributes to sustainable living makes a positive impact on our environment, our residents, our businesses, and our community.
Recycling many of our everyday items is mandatory in Westchester County.
The City of White Plains is pleased to present many options to our residents to make recycling easy. The overall goal is to exponentially decrease the tonnage of items that would enter the waste stream when they are thrown out as trash.
