MAYOR JENNINGS ANNOUNCES ALBANY’S
PLANS FOR RECYCLING NYS LICENSE PLATES
course of the next two years, the New York StateDepartment of Motor Vehicles
will be mailing new license plates to everyone in New York State when they renew
their registrations. That Department has notified all municipalities that
they will be responsible for the collection and disposal of the old license
plates. We are asking for the cooperation of our residents in disposing of
the old license plates properly since individuals will be responsible for any
traffic or parking tickets written against their old plate number.
The City of
Albany’s recycling facility cannot accept the plates and we must collect them
separately from other recyclables. Therefore, the City will place blue
recycling bins for license plate collection at each location that distributes
compost bags. We ask that residents bring their old license plates to one
of the nine distribution sites throughout the City. Those nine sites are
of General Services, 1 Conners Blvd.

Jennings said, “I greatly appreciate the cooperation of residents in helping
the City recycle the old license plates properly. I have no doubt that
Albany will have one of the most successful license collection programs in the
information or details on the program, please contact Frank Zeoli, Department of
General Services, at 434-2489.
Mayor asked that a copy of this press release be sent to you.
