LABUDA ANNOUNCES FALL LITTERPLUCK EFFORTS

Sullivan County Roadside Cleanup Event Set for October 13

October 2, 2007

MONTICELLO – Sullivan County Legislator Kathleen LaBuda, who chairs the Legislative Public Works Committee, announced today the Fall Litterpluck through the Legislature’s Sullivan Beautification program will take place county-wide on Saturday, October 13, 2007.

 

As with every Litterpluck, the Sullivan County Division of Public Works & Solid Waste will donate trash bags for this community-based roadside cleanup event, & will accept the roadside refuse for disposal free-of-charge at the County Landfill and county-run Transfer Stations.  Starting this fall, the donated bags will be clear to promote recycling and proper disposal of refuse, at the suggestion of LaBuda’s Recycling Advisory Committee.

 

LaBuda also announced another enhancement to the program, saying, “The one complaint we have heard about Litterpluck from the participants is that they have to travel to Monticello, to either the Government Center or the Landfill, to register and pick up their free bags.  Starting with this Fall Litterpluck, Litterpluck materials will be available at the individual Transfer Stations and the County Landfill, but also at each Town or Village Hall that was willing to participate.  We believe this more convenient access to registration and materials, which requires little to no effort on the part of the municipalities, will encourage more participation in these events.”

 

The Sullivan Beautification program is a Legislature-sponsored effort designed to improve the aesthetic appeal of Sullivan County communities through free tonnage allotments in the County landfill for cleanup programs such as Adopt-A-Road and Litter-pluck, along with tonnage allotments for beautification efforts from participating municipalities, civic organizations and programs, including the “Unsafe Buildings” program through the Gerry Foundation.  The DPW Summer Interns and county-wide Clean Team, as well as the Tire Amnesty and Household Hazardous Waste Days are also Sullivan Beautification efforts.
