Oysters shells are collected for the Billion Oyster project. As for glass and cardboard, we separate them, but in all honesty, I don't know if they get recycled. There is very little transparency in the carting business. I would like that to change. -Naama Tamir, small business owner

Recycling infrastructure just doesn’t exist in many cities around the country, especially for small businesses. Real recycling will take more than individuals doing their part—it will take cities stepping up to transform trash. Join our campaign to transform NYC’s commercial waste system and to make your voice heard for increasing recycling for good jobs and healthy communities for all: http://bit.ly/tdtsignup.
