Take-Back Day is Coming: Donate Clothes and Furniture, Shred Documents, Toss Out Old Cell Phones, and More PDF Print Email


By Mary Liz Mulligan, Chair, Bronxville Green Committee

May 15, 2019:  The Bronxville Green Committee’s semi-annual take-back day is not far off. It is on June 8 from 10:00 am to 1:00 pm at Palumbo Place. Please enter on Pondfield Road at the police department driveway.

We have a new collection category, which is a good thing for many reasons. We will be collecting clean, usable clothing (no shoes or purses, please) for the Vietnam Vets of America. I have been donating to this organization for years and they are very appreciative.

The timing is perfect to let you know of this new collection since we are all in swap-out mode for the heavy warm clothes to summer fare. Spring is here ... although it doesn’t seem like it.

We will have a total of five collection categories:

County Mobile Shredder. The truck will be with us to shred your sensitive paper documents. There is a limit of two cartons/shopping bags per car. No walk-ups, please, for safety and fairness reasons. There is always a lineup of cars for the shredder; walk-ups are put into harm’s way because of all the vehicle traffic on Palumbo during the event. The truck capacity is five tons, and once it is reached, the paper collection is ceased. We have often been able to continue collecting right to the final bell, but several times, it fills before 1:00 pm, so please try not to wait until 12:30 to head over because you may be disappointed. There is only one shredder truck for the entire county, and we have it scheduled for Bronxville two times a year. For your planning purposes, the next visit will be November 2.

Furniture Sharehouse. Furniture Sharehouse accepts used but still functional furniture for needy families in Westchester County. Please check here for guidelines and restrictions. This organization has helped thousands of our needy families.

E-Waste. E-waste includes computer monitors, keyboards, VCRs, printers, fax machines, cell phones, and more.

Animal Shelter. Clean towels and sheets are accepted for animal shelters; no dog beds, please.

Vietnam Vets of America. Clean, usable clothing (no shoes or purses, please). 

If you have any questions, please email Mary Liz Mulligan at CLOAKING  

Please check out the Bronxville Green Committee page on the Village of Bronxville website.

You can also access the Bronxville Giving Garden page on the site and become involved by digging and planting, weeding, harvesting, and delivering the freshest veggies to our needy neighbors.

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.
