They will do this on Saturday, January 5, and Saturday, January 12 to benefit Orange Lions Charities.  The fee is only $15 per tree. 

When you participate, you will be helping fund local community grants to worthwhile non-profit groups, and also helping our environment by recycling your tree.  No pile of needles all over your living room or family room, and no need to lug your tree to the transfer station!

Paper Shredding, Mattress Recycling, and Clothing and Household Goods Collection Saturday

The Orange Recycling Committee’s paper shredding and mattress recycling event scheduled for Saturday, October 13, from 9 a.m. to noon at High Plains Community Center (HPCC), 525 OrangeCenter Road, will once again be joined by the Orange Community Women hosting a FUNDrive for Clothes and Household Items.

The Orange Community Women are asking residents to bring clothing, shoes, towels, electronics, toys and games, kitchen items, sporting goods and more to the pavilion that morning. This benefit will help support many community projects.

Orange Recycling Committee Chair Mitch Goldblatt is excited about the additional service. “Saturday, October
13th will be a great morning for a Fall Clean-Out at its best”, Goldblatt said. “I’m encouraging all residents to bring their household goods and clothes in addition to their documents, papers, and even mattresses for an ultimate recycling event!”

The secure, on-site paper shredding service will once again be handled by town resident Joe Johnston’s company, Affordable Solutions. 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 “We are thrilled to partner with the Rotary Club of Orange, the Orange Lions Club, and the Orange Community Women to offer these important environmental services to residents,” said Mitch Goldblatt. “Purging homes of these items and keeping them out of landfills helps our environment as well as 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 seventh 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 as well as household goods recycling to this event has made this one event not to be missed.

Where There Is A Need, There Is A Lion

The Lions Club of Orange dedicated its latest gift to the town of Orange, a three-tiered water fountain at the Orange Fairgrounds, on Saturday, July 1.

The fountain was the idea of Lion Ken Lenz, who spoke at the dedication, first about the history of the Lions Club International, which is celebrating its 100th anniversary this year, and then addressing the local Lions contributions to the community.

Selectman Mitch Goldblatt also addressed the Lions in attendance, thanking them for their donation to the town.

Although it was well publicized, only two non-Lions attended the dedication, which is a shame. But people utilizing the walking track did receive Lions Club water bottles that they could fill from the fountain for many years to come.

Enjoy this fountain, everyone. Think about the Lions Club when you fill your water bottles during the Independence Day Concert and Fireworks, or “water” your dog during a walk.

The Lions is one club that really does a lot for the community, don’t forget to say “Thank You” when you see one of them around town.
