Residents took advantage of our recycling day. This is what was dropped off!
The Greenburgh Recycling Day on Saturday was a success with over 340 vehicles stopping by to drop off recyclables at our highway garage. According to our Deputy Public Works Commissioner, Brian Simmons --
In total, the Greenburgh Recycling Day collected:
· 1 full sanitation truck of bulk items (e.g. furniture, tables, bed frames, etc.)
· 1 full 30-yard dumpster of metal items (e.g. bikes, appliances, chairs, etc.)
· 1/3 of a 30-yard dumpster of white metal items (e.g. refrigerators, air conditioners, dehumidifiers, etc.)
· 6 containers of E-waste (e.g. computers, TVs, printers, etc.)
· 1 container of textiles (e.g. clothing, shoes, sheets, towels, etc.)
In addition, over 3 cubic yards of wood chips were distributed to residents for their personal use. I had stopped by twice during the event and those who took advantage of the day loved it.
Thank you to the Bureau of Sanitation, Bureau of Highway, Equipment Repair Bureau and DPW Admin. for your hard work to make this event successful.
Thank you to the Greenburgh Police Department, especially Sergeant Reckson and Joe Stevenson, for your help with traffic control.
We hope to organize another recycling day later this year and will keep you informed of the date and time.
