Where can I recycle corrugated plastic in New York City? It appears to be the dreaded plastic #5 (polypropylene). I have about 35 sheets.

Response by poster: I should add that the sheets have nail punctures along the edges of them and are somewhat warped.

Best answer: I don't suppose you've got an indie filmmaker lying around who needs signs to direct his crew to their shoot, do you? That stuff's ubiquitous everywhere there's a film shoot out here in LA, and a few nail holes and some warping wouldn't matter if they were just getting tacked to telephone poles.

Best answer: Stuff like this is easy to reuse. A post on freecycle around here would have them gone immediately and people would come and pick them up.
