Mark Your Calendars For The Next Orange Shredding/Mattress Recycling Event

 Around Town, Home, Latest News  Comments Off on Mark Your Calendars For The Next Orange Shredding/Mattress Recycling Event
Oct 152019
 

The Orange Recycling Committee has announced the next paper shredding and mattress recycling event for Saturday, October 19, 2019 from 9 a.m. to Noon at the front parking lot of High Plains Community Center (HPCC).

The committee will once again be joined by the Mattress Recycling Council collecting used mattresses and box springs.

The secure, on-site paper shredding service will once again be handled by Affordable Solutions,
owned and operated by Orange resident Joe Johnston.

Residents may bring bags or boxes filled with documents for shredding and volunteers from the Orange Recycling Committee will deposit them into the shredding truck. This service is generously funded by the Rotary Club of Orange. Residents may show their appreciation by donating to the Orange Rotary Scholarship Fund. Rotarians will be on hand to collect donations.

Residents also may bring mattresses and box springs for recycling. This free service is made
possible through a partnership with the Mattress Recycling Council’s Bye Bye Mattress
Program.

Dry mattresses (of all sizes) and box springs will be accepted. However, mattresses
from futons/sofa beds or waterbeds; mattresses infested with bed bugs; wet, damaged or
excessively soiled mattresses; sleeping bag or mattress pads/toppers, are not part of the
program.

For residents who need assistance getting mattresses and box springs to the event, members of
the Orange Lions Club will pick-up these items from residences, given they are outside and dry
or in a garage for easy access, as volunteers will not enter individual homes.

Anyone interested in this pick-up service should contact Ken Lenz at 203-795-3906. The fee for pick-up is $10 per mattress or box spring. Payment is by cash or check made out to Orange Lions Charities, and all proceeds are considered a charitable donation.

Orange Recycling Committee Chair Mitch Goldblatt said he is excited about this opportunity for our residents to dispose of items at no cost.

“Saturday, October 19th will be a great morning for cleaning out before the winter sets in”, Goldblatt said. “I’m encouraging all residents to bring their personal documents, papers, and even mattresses for the ultimate Orange Recycling event!”

“We are thrilled to partner with the Rotary Club of Orange and the Orange Lions Club to offer these important environmental services to residents,” said Goldblatt. “Purging homes of these items and keeping them out of landfills helps our environment as well as our tax dollars. This is a fun event that gives volunteers and residents an opportunity to work together for a cleaner and more sustainable planet.”

For the ninth time, the Orange Recycling Committee is helping residents dispose of thousands of pounds of sensitive financial and medical papers in a secure, environmentally-responsible way. Adding mattress and box spring recycling to this event has made this one event not to be missed.

A file photo from a Santa’s Helper visit. Little Cindy Lou Who is probably 15 years old now.

Annie “Elf Mama” Davis was a huge part of the Orange Community, For more than 20 years, she took the reigns of the OVFD Auxiliary’s Santa’s Helper program and helped bring joy to thousands of children and families across town.

While at home with her only son, Michael, on Monday, Sept. 23, Annie wasn’t feeling well and she passed out. Michael called 911 and his mom passed away at the hospital after having a heart attack.

Michael has a job but cannot afford to stay in his childhood home. He’ll be moving out of state at the end of October.

Annie adored her son and always wanted what was best for him.

We, the friends of Annie Davis, are hosting this fundraiser at the Orange Ale House, 517 Boston Post Road, Orange, on Friday, Nov. 8 from 5-9 p.m.

We will have raffle baskets, a silent auction, and food.
