Town’s New Recycling Guide and Stickers to Arrive in Mailboxes This Month
North Hempstead, NY – North Hempstead Town Supervisor Judi Bosworth, the Town Board, and the Town’s Solid Waste Management Authority announced that residents will be receiving in their mailboxes a recycling information sheet and decals for labeling recycling and yard waste containers during the month of September.
“A significant priority for me as Supervisor has always been the protection and preservation of our local environment, and an important means of achieving that goal is by recycling,” said Supervisor Bosworth. “Residents must understand that recycling today is much different than what we recycled 5 or 10 years ago. We hope that having all this information available in one single document will make it easier for our residents to help us conserve our natural resources and ensure that items are successfully recycled. We encourage our residents to review this information, and, in the process, learn how to reduce waste and leave a lasting, positive impact on our environment.”
The information sheet will detail how to properly discard metal, glass and plastic; mixed paper and cardboard; and yard waste. Also included will be decals for labeling recycling and yard waste set-out containers.
