Ron Gonen, NYC's first-ever deputy commissioner of sanitation, recycling, and sustainability, joins us weekly in April to talk about recycling in NYC. This week: news that the city will now recycle all rigid plastics, along with metal and glass -- including yogurt containers and iced coffee cups.

According to the city's Sanitation department, "Toys, Plastic Yogurt and Coffee Cups, Food Containers and All Rigid Plastic" is recyclable, and starting next month, the city will be expanding the organics recycling program to parts of Staten Island.
