Volunteers take trash and turn village into treasure
MILLERTON — Residents of the village of Millerton and the town of North East were invited to bring all their unwanted junk over to the Town Highway Garage on Saturday, Sept. 25, for the annual Bulk Trash Day and Electronic Recycling event.
From 8 a.m. to noon, residents popped by the garage at 11 South Center St. in Millerton, diagonally across from Fish Street, to drop off bulk trash, including lawn mowers, metal, tools, appliances, furniture, carpeting and more, along with unwanted electronics such as computers, monitors, printers, stereos and so on.
Once residents dropped off their unwanted materials, Climate Smart Millerton volunteers worked together to make sure the materials were properly disposed of, recycled or repurposed for future use.
