May 24, 2017: The Bronxville Green Committee will host its semi-annual Take-Back Day on Saturday, June 10, from 10:00 am to 1:00 pm, so it's time to de-clutter! Take-Back Day is a day of recycling when you can bring items that are not generally collected in the weekly recycling pickups as well as cartons of paper documents. Members of the Bronxville Green Committee, as well as several Bronxville Department of Public Works staff members, will be on hand to direct and assist you. We will be there rain or shine!
We continue to keep this event a true green event with the goal that all that is collected ends up, in one form or another, repurposed.
You will see our volunteers in front of Bronxville Village Hall sporting our spiffy new signs that day. Enter from the driveway of the Bronxville Police Station off Pondfield Road, just past village hall as you head north on Pondfield Road. There will be volunteers and DPW staff members at the site entrance to direct you. Palumbo Place will be closed to traffic coming from Gramatan Avenue during the collection hours.
The county paper shredder will be with us. There is a two-box limit per car, and only residential papers will be accepted; commercial drop-offs are not permitted.
Take-Back Day will take place rain or shine.
Furniture: Used but still usable furniture. Furniture Sharehouse is a not-for-profit organization established in 2007 that provides free furniture to economically disadvantaged individuals and families living in Westchester County, giving them the basic household furnishings that enable them to rebuild their lives and live with dignity.
IMPORTANT: Not all furniture is accepted, so please check the guidelines here.
Old Linens: Sheets, towels, and blankets only, please. They will be brought to the Yonkers Animal Shelter.
E-Waste: Electronic devices: Computers, tablets, monitors, fax machines, printers, TVs, VCRs, cell phones. Click here to view additional acceptable items classified "electronic waste."
Paper Documents: Residential papers with all paper clips and staples removed. Commercial drop-offs are not accepted. The county mobile shredder will be there for secure, on-site shredding. There is a two-carton limit per car.
Special thanks to the Bronxville Green Committee members, Mayor Mary Marvin, Wayne Ballard (superintendent of public works), and the dedicated and always helpful DPW staff for making this much-needed event possible.
