Nov. 8, 2017: The Bronxville Green Committee will host its semi-annual "take-back day" next week on Saturday, November 18, so it's time to think, "declutter"!
The event will take place from 10:00 am to 1:00 pm, rain or shine, behind Bronxville Village Hall (Palumbo Place).
Members of the Bronxville Green Committee, as well as several DPW staff members, will be on hand volunteering their time to direct and assist you. We will be there rain or shine!
We continue to keep this event a true green event. Everything collected ends up, in one form or another, repurposed.
Entrance: A large Bronxville Green Committee lawn banner will be placed at the entrance on Friday. On Saturday, you will see our volunteers in front of village hall sporting our signs.
Enter from the Pondfield Road police station driveway, which is just past village hall off of Pondfield Road. Drive straight through to Palumbo Place and make a right, and you will see our collections stations on either side of the street with signs stating what the collection is for that spot. There will be volunteers and DPW staff to help guide 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 paper items will be accepted only if they are residential waste; commercial drop-offs are not permitted.
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: Click here to check the guidelines, as not all furniture is accepted.
Old linens: 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 documents: The county mobile shredder will be there for secure, on-site shredding. There is a two-carton limit per car. All paper clips and staples must be removed. Commercial drop-offs are not accepted.
Special thanks to the Bronxville Green Committee members, to Mayor Mary Marvin--our liaison to the VOB--and to the dedicated and always-helpful DPW staff for making this much-needed and appreciated event possible.
