Public Recycling

My husband and I just moved to Newburgh from Brooklyn and have so many cardboard boxes and our residential recycling bin is full. Are there any public recycling drop off locations in Newburgh?

There is a document on the city’s website for recycling, which you can see here. It doesn’t specify anything about recycling in bulk. So I think it would be best to call them:

DPW: (845) 565-3297
Sanitation: (845) 565-1082

Agree, contact the city. It’s different from Brooklyn; it’s more direct! Someone will pick up the phone and answer your question.

Welcome to Newburgh!

If you’re heading that way, there is a transfer station on 17k just outside the city, 1/4 mi. past the rte. 300 intersection, prior to the airport on the left; no charge for household recycled materials, large garbage bags are $2 (great for remodeling debris, so make it fit), open weekdays until 3 and Saturdays until noon. They charge for metal so take that to All Recycling on William Street and they pay you.

I hate to sound dense, but what are Recycling Bins? I tie up my unused boxes,set them out on the curb and they’re gone in the morning. My other recyclables go in a clear bag.

Yeah when I have a ton of cardboard boxes I break them down and put them in a big clear plastic bag and they always get taken.

Or just go to the Newburgh dump.

hello everyone I am new in this group.
