Commissioner Joseph P. Scarpelli invites Nutley residents and neighbors to bring their unused DVD’s, CD’s, plastic CD/DVD cases (jewel cases), and VHS tapes for recycling to the Greenutley Farmers Market on Sunday, Oct. 21st from 9am to 1pm in Municipal Parking Lot #1, William Street.
“The Department of Public Works and Greenutley understand that as technology changes the public has more and more of these items in storage with no environmentally friendly way of discarding them,” said Scarpelli. “Our goal is to keep these hard-to-recycle items out of the landfill while working with innovative companies that can recycle these items that are deemed obsolete to us.” Commissioner Scarpelli added that over 90% of today’s techno trash is not being recycled according to GreenDisk, the company that will be recycling our items.
The public is reminded that the Greenutley Farmers Market runs through Sunday, October 28th, with the following activities on the remainder of the market season calendar:
October 28th – Rigid Plastic Recycling
