Orange Community Women Clothing and Household Goods Drive Added To Paper Shredding And Mattress Recycling Event

 Around Town, Home, Latest News  Comments Off on Orange Community Women Clothing and Household Goods Drive Added To Paper Shredding And Mattress Recycling Event
Apr 232018
 

The Orange Community Women will be hosting a FUNDrive for Clothes and Household Items joining the Orange Recycling Committee’s (ORC) paper shredding and mattress recycling event on Saturday, April 28, 2018, from 9 a.m. to noon at the High Plains Community Center, 525 Orange Center Road.

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, April 28 will be a great morning for Spring cleaning 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.

For the second year, 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 homes. Those 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 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, Chair of the Orange Recycling Committee. “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 sixth time, this shredding event will help residents dispose of thousands of pounds of
sensitive financial and medical papers in a secure, environmentally-responsible way. Adding
mattress and box spring recycling last year proved a success, so it’s expected that more
residents will be availing themselves of this opportunity this year.

The Orange Police Department sent a team to this year’s ‘Battle of the Badges’ competition at Yale University to benefit the Smilow Cancer Center.

This is a contest where teams of three make as many bench-press repetitions as they can. Each lift equals 75% of the competitor’s body weight if the contestant is male, and 50% of their body weight if female.

The Orange Police Department team, consisting of officers Chris Brown, Vin Landisio, and Brent Crawford combined for 128 repetitions, which was good for second place.
