Recycle Electronic Devices, Paper, Sports Equipment, and Old Linens at Take-Back Day Saturday, October 27 PDF Print Email


By Mary Liz Mulligan, Chairman, Bronxville Green Committee

Oct. 17, 2018: The Bronxville Green Committee ("BGC") will host the semi-annual Take-Back Day on Saturday, October 27, from 10:00 am to 1:00 pm, rain or shine. Volunteer members of the BGC, as well as several DPW staff, will be on hand to direct and assist you.

We continue to keep this a true green event for residents. Everything collected ends up, in one form or another, repurposed. Please keep in mind that this is not a trash drop-off event. It is a recycling event.

Directions. The entrance for drop-offs will be the Bronxville Police Department driveway on Pondfield Road, directly across the street from Crows Nest Road. There will be a large "Bronxville Green Committee" lawn banner at the entrance. There will be lane dividers to keep one lane open for police access to the station and the other for Take-Back Day participants. Stations will be spaced out, with clear signage, and volunteers will direct you to the collection station you need. Palumbo Place will be closed to traffic during the collection hours. Please remember to drive slowly when in the process of dropping off.

Accepted Items:

Used Items for Yonkers Animal Shelter: Sheets, towels, and blankets will be collected and brought to the Yonkers Animal Shelter. No other linens, please.

E-Waste: Electronic devices such as computers, tablets, monitors, cell phones, printers, and televisions will be accepted. Click here to view more items classified "electronic waste" that will be accepted.

Paper for the County Mobile Paper Shredder: The county mobile shredder will be there to do secure, on-site shredding. There is a two-carton limit per car. All paper clips and staples need to be removed. Commercial drop-offs are not accepted, and no walk-ins are allowed for safety and fairness reasons. There is usually a line for the shredder. When the truck is filled to capacity, which often happens before 1:00 pm, the shredding is over.

Sports Equipment for Let's Play It Forward: Let's Play It Forward is a 501(c)(3) not-for-profit organization that collects sports equipment in gently used condition and repurposes it for needy groups or organizations. Please check its website,, and click on "Donate" for specific information on acceptable items.

Thank you. A special thanks to the Bronxville Green Committee members, Mayor Mary Marvin, Jim Palmer, and the dedicated and always helpful DPW staff for making this much-needed and appreciated event possible.

Donations. Small monetary donations are welcome. We always seem to need more signs.

Information. For additional information, please contact CLOAKING or the Bronxville DPW at 914-337-7338.

Bronxville Overview

Bronxville Overview

Bronxville is a quaint village (one square mile) located just 16 miles north of midtown Manhattan (roughly 30 minutes on the train) and has a population of approximately 6,500. It is known as a premier community with an excellent public school (K-12) and easy access to Manhattan. Bronxville offers many amenities including an attractive business district, a hospital (Lawrence Hospital), public paddle and tennis courts, fine dining at local restaurants, two private country clubs and a community library.

While the earliest settlers of Bronxville date back to the first half of the 18th century, the history of the modern suburb of Bronxville began in 1890 when William Van Duzer Lawrence purchased a farm and commissioned the architect, William A. Bates, to design a planned community of houses for well-known artists and professionals that became a thriving art colony. This community, now called Lawrence Park, is listed on the National register of Historic Places and many of the homes still have artists’ studios. A neighborhood association within Lawrence Park called “The Hilltop Association” keeps this heritage alive with art shows and other events for neighbors.

Bronxville offers many charming neighborhoods as well as a variety of living options for residents including single family homes, town houses, cooperatives and condominiums. One of the chief benefits of living in “the village” is that your children can attend the Bronxville School.

The Bronxville postal zone (10708, known as “Bronxville PO”) includes the village of Bronxville as well as the Chester Heights section of Eastchester, parts of Tuckahoe and the Lawrence Park West, Cedar Knolls, Armour Villa and Longvale sections of Yonkers. Many of these areas have their own distinct character. For instance, the Armour Villa section has many historic homes and even has its own newsletter called “The Villa Voice” which reports on neighborhood news.
