United War Veterans Recycling is the largest recycling program of its kind in the greater New York area. UWVC Recycling collected more than 12.5 million pounds of clothing and household goods in 2015, working with a private sector partner to sell or otherwise re-use the material collected.
Our program is a self-sustaining model that generates funds to support our work for veterans. In addition, it:
- Helps the environment by keeping material out of landfills;
- Saves taxpayers and municipalities money in disposal costs;
- Allows donors to take a tax deduction for donations of clothing and household goods.
