The Hudson Valley Recycles!

Thanks to the great support for our year’s recycling events.

As chair of the Dutchess County Regional Chamber of Commerce’s Living Green Committee, I am thrilled to share that we recycled over 26 tons of electronic waste in our 2 day event back in October. That included a full 30 foot trailer and 2 box trucks filled with over 500 televisions and computer monitors as well as pallets and pallets of printers, keyboards, and all manner of obsolete electronic equipment. We’ll be scheduling another event in the spring, so stayed tuned.

When it comes to our Hudson Valley Federal Credit Union Shred Events, we finished off our last event at the Brewster Branch this past Friday and estimate our year’s total at nearly 30 tons. That’s over 400 trees saved and 75 cubic yards of landfill. We’ll have the 2012 schedule posted shortly–so keep checking the website for next year’s dates.

Great work Hudson Valley! HV Shred is proud to call you neighbors and love being able to say we were born, raised, and continue to make the Hudson Valley our home.
