Environmentalists, take note, New York State has issued the nation’s first license plate promoting solid waste recycling. (Hard to believe that NYS is on the cutting edge but it’s true.) This diary has been cross-posted on dailykos.com

Developed jointly by the New York State Department of Motor Vehicles http://www.nydmv.state.ny.us/cplates.htm and The New York State Association for Reduction Reuse and Recycling (NYSAR3) http://nysar3.org/index.html, the plate features the green chasing arrows recycling symbol overlaid on a silhouette of New York State. The motto “New York Recycles” is displayed below. Apparently, the state of Washington is interested and is considering a similar plate.

There is an initial fee of $43.00 and thereafter the annual fee is $25.00. This annual fee is credited to Environmental Protection Fund’s solid waste account for funding of municipal waste reduction or other recycling activities.

The New York State Association for Reduction Reuse and Recycling is a statewide entity that was formed in 1988. It is dedicated to the promotion of recycling and providing educational and networking opportunities to public and private recycling professionals throughout New York State. It also supports citizens, advocates and not-for profit organizations dedicated to waste prevention, material reuse and recycling.
