Every year, the Warwick Valley Chamber of Commerce sponsors an official roadside cleanup event throughout the entire town of Warwick. Grab your trash bag and join in the fun the weekend of Friday to Sunday, April 29, 30 & May 1, 2016! Operation Clean Sweep Committee Co-Chairs Jean Beattie and Ryan Hansen will coordinate the event along with Michael Johndrow, Executive Director of the Warwick Valley Chamber of Commerce and Warwick Valley High School student Julia Vargas.
Various groups, clubs, and individuals take part by pre-registering their routes in order to ensure garbage pickup by DPW. (Please note that this is for roadside refuse, not homeowner garbage.) Please call 845-986-2720 to register your road in advance, or come in person on Saturday, April 30th from 8-12 to the Caboose at South Street to register your road and enjoy free refreshments. Garbage bags and gloves will be available to anyone who registers and can be picked up at the South Street Caboose at any time.
There are several scheduled programs this year! Kevin Brand from The Computer Guy will be collecting electronic equipment for recycling at his business location, 14 West Street between 9am–2pm. The Warwick Valley Coalition will again be sponsoring an unused prescription pill drop-off in conjunction with the DEA between 10am-2pm. Also, the Warwick Lions Club will host old eyeglass and hearing aid collection as well as a shredding truck in the South Street parking lot on Saturday, April 30th between 9am–12pm. There is a suggested $5 donation per box or bag. Leo Kaytes Ford will be hosting a motor oil collection for recycling at their location at 145 Route 94 South from 8am-5:30pm on Friday the 29th and from 8am-5pm on Saturday the 30th.
