APARTMENT WANTED FOR PILOT RECYCLING PROGRAM
Release Date: June 12, 2008
I MET WITH Peter Costa, Jr and Jack Lombardi of the Division of Solid Waste Management yesterday. The county is looking for one or two apartments to volunteer to be part of a pilot program for recycling. The county will supply (at no cost) recycling containers/bins. The county will monitor the facilities recycling. If you live in an apartment and would like to participate – please e mail me and Peter Costa.
Thank you for your time today with Mr. Lombardi and myself.
As discussed WestchesterCounty would like to conduct a Pilot Program for Recycling at 1 or 2 multi-family dwellings in your town.
WestchesterCounty will supply recycling containers and or bins (attached samples) and we will conduct a building audit in which our staff will advise what containers / bins would work and where.
WestchesterCounty will also supply the building owner/manger with educational materials to distribute to the residents combined with what the buildings policies will be (where the bins will be kept)
All we ask the town to do is in cooperation with the County monitor the facilities recycling.
Some suggestions in picking buildings;
3 plus family units but under 35 families. (+ -)
Once one or two buildings are chosen we will arrange the inspector to go out an conduct the audit.
Thank you again for your assistance.
