Letter to the editor from Joanne Clark
Holidays are hectic and rushed. It’s the season of additional food containers, party supplies and all sorts of packaging and wrappings, plus batteries and old electronics replaced by new. No getting around it, there’s just more to recycle during the holidays.
New regulations in 2018 prohibit certain items from single stream recycling, as outlined on Town website.
- Plastic Bags and Wrappings – bring to dedicated bin at Holly Hill or put in trash
- Styrofoam – put in trash
- Shredded Paper – bring to dedicated bin at Holly Hill or put in trash
Holly Hill has dedicated bins for old batteries and electronics, and the Book Shed located in the recycling area happily accepts used books. The Goodwill trailer accepts used household items and clothing. It’s easy to set these items aside and deliver to Holly Hill when convenient.
In all the rush of the season, take a calming moment to enjoy the holiday baskets and tree lights along Greenwich Avenue. Although December dismisses any reminders of global warming, environmental problems persist during winter. Thank you for recycling. You will make a difference.
