Events

Spring is our busiest time of the year.  We begin with road-side litter clean-up, then open up the town's e-waste bin on a Saturday for folks who cannot stop by during the week.  We've coordinated a Paper Shredding event with the town clerk.  Finally, as supply lasts, we have a Black Gold day (fully composted cow manure, that is, for your garden).

Saturday, March 28 - Town-wide, Road-side Litter Clean-up.  We will be stationedoutside at the Library or town hall campus starting at 9:00 am to hand out bags, pickers, gloves, etc.  Coffee and donuts to give you a boost!

UPDATE - County just cancelled the Shredder originally scheduled for April 4.
Saturday, April 4 - E-Waste and more!  It's all happening at 66 June Road.  
     E-Waste pod will be open from 9:00 am to 2:00 pm. 
     The shredder was just cancelled by the County.  We will let you know if and when it is rescheduled.
     The meeting room will be open so that you can discard unneeded and expired prescriptions.
     The police will be around to help you with infant car seat safety issues.  Visit the town website for more info - https://www.northsalemny.org/home/news/purge-your-electronics-paperwork-and-medications  

Saturday, May 2 - Library Fair.  Please visit our table for more recycling information.  We will be there from 10:00 am to 2:00 pm and we will have our resueable bags and straws for purchase.

New "Entering North Salem" signs have been installed.  We'll never understand what motivates them, but vandals damaged and totally destroyed four of our gateway signs last year.  All totaled, six of eight signs were down!  We have not been defeated, however. We ordered new and slightly improved signs this spring and they are up!
