LITTLE SILVER ENVIRO DAY IS MARCH 19

ls-enviro-8732781On Saturday, March 19, the Borough of Little Silver presents its annual Environmental Day, as an opportunity for residents to cut down on waste and clutter around their households, and to learn about green solutions and other earth-friendly topics.

Hosted at the Women’s Club of Little Silver (111 Church Street), the four-hour event is scheduled to run between 9 am and 1 pm, with a variety of services offered free of charge — including paper shredding, electronic waste collection, and a used clothing drive. In addition, the public is welcome to attend a compost workshop, a beekeeping discussion, and a set of informational displays on topics of environmental and local historical interest.

“Anything with a cord” will be accepted and properly recycled (by Monmouth Wire and Computer Recycling, Inc.) at the electronic waste collection site. Please note that televisions are recycled for a $10 fee (cash or check only). Call (732)922-3320 or visit www.computerreclamation.com for more information, or bring discarded television sets to the Monmouth County Reclamation Center, where TVs are recycled free of charge. Call (732)683-8686 for information.

The nonprofit Rescue Mission of Trenton will be accepting gently used clothing, linens and shoes for distribution to those who need it most, as well as to resell and create revenue in support of their programs. 

SafeGuard Document Destruction will be providing an on-site residential document shredding truck. The truck will accept paper (staples/paper clips OK), and books (hard and soft cover), but no plastic items. The truck has capacity of 12,000 pounds, and will depart when full (residents only; no businesses please).

A free Compost Workshop will be presented by the Environmental Commission of Little Silver between 10 and 10:45 am. Earth Machine composter units can be purchased for $35 (that’s up to $65 off retail price), and must be ordered prior to the March 19 event. Attendees must register in advance for the workshop by March 11, via email at [email protected], or by calling the Monmouth County Recycling Coordinator at (732)683-8686, ext. 6721.

Local beekeeper Liz Hanson will give a talk and answer questions from 11 to 11:30 am, and informational displays will be provided by the Environmental Commission, Little Silver Garden Club, and Parker Homestead 1665. Email Bonnie Akey at [email protected] for additional details on the 2016 Little Silver Environmental Day.

Remember: Nothing makes a Red Bank friend happier than to hear "I saw you on Red Bank Green!"
