NY: Agencies could recycle body armor for pay

When New York City agencies take their out-of-warranty protective vests to a Long Island recycling plant like they did earlier this month, they're not just shredding body armor - they're shredding cash.

In the past three years, the Department of Citywide Administrative Services has recommended that agencies including correction, the Queens district attorney's office and the parks department pay Gershow Recycling Corp. of Medford 25 cents per pound to place the vests in junk cars and send them through a massive shredder, department spokesman Mark Daly said.
