Where to recycle odd plastic?

As someone who used to live in recycling nirvanna, Seattle, I find living in New York City, with it's limited recycling program kind of frustrating. Is there any place in the city that accepts #5 plastic?

That kind of plastic is barely recyclable in any meaningful sense. To really do the environment a favor, avoid it altogether.

Well, a google search turned up the Park Slope Food Coop in Brooklyn, New York. As a part of their recycling program they will accept clear and opaque #5 plastic tubs and cups due to a partnership with Recycline (who use the them to make a number of consumer products).

The people at the Lower East Side Ecology Center would probably have some answers to your question.
