Many households generate more recyclables than general trash. The Village of Nyack is great at carting away trash, but has hired out recyclables to Miele Sanitation, a New Jersey firm which only does it twice a month. That can be a drag if you miss the day and have to go 4-5 weeks without pickup.
You can drop off your recyclables at the Country material recovery facility (MRF), which is located 420 Torne Valley Road in Hillburn. That is the little hamlet just north where Rte 287 and Rte87 split.

Miele Sanitation can be contacted at 201-768-5407 or firstname.lastname@example.org. They don’t have a website. They say that the recycle everything that is on the County flyer.
