Visitors to the Nutley Farmers Market are invited to do their bit to help the environment by donating old trophies and medals for recycling.
The market will accept the metal goods this Sunday, Sept. 9 from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. in Municipal Parking Lot No. 1
The Department of Public Works and Greenutley are continuously looking for ways to expand the Township’s recycling program,” said Commissioner Joseph Scarpelli, who directs the public works department and recyling. “Trophy Recycling Day is an environmentally responsible way to clean out your closet, trophy cases and shelves.”
Greenutley members are working with a local trophy vendor, K&K Trophy of Lyndhurst, to dismantle the items collect and re-use various parts and hardware to both repair existing trophies and build new ones, Scarpelli said.
