For more than two generations, Westchester’s recycling rate has stood well above the EPA national goal of 35 percent. In 2021, the County continued to demonstrate why it is considered a regional leader in the field of environmental management by posting a municipal (residential) recycling rate of 50 percent and an overall recycling rate of 50 percent.

The Westchester County Food Waste Study has been completed. The results of this study assess key factors that affect the overall feasibility of a food waste diversion program within the County. Not all the appendices are available at this time but they will be included shortly.
