HOW IT WORKS
The program puts you in control of keeping plastic out of our landfills, streets, and oceans.
The plastic waste you collect will be converted into ByBlock® – a 100% repurposed building material made entirely of non-recyclable plastic waste that will be used in projects throughout the city for everyone to enjoy. No Cleaning, sorting, or pre-processing necessary.
It’s that simple!
