NYS DEC social media recognizes the Town of Bethlehem for its recycling success

From the New York State Department of Environmental Conservation:

Today for our 25th NYS Municipal Recycling Law Anniversary Celebration, we’re highlighting the successes of the Town of Bethlehem of Region 4. The Town of Bethlehem, located in Albany County, NY has a population of about 35,000 and an area of 52 square miles. Bethlehem has a proud tradition of strong participation in recycling and composting programs, and the Town has helped lead the way since the early 1990’s. Starting in 2014 the Town created Community Recycling Stations, which provide free 24/7 recycling opportunities for cardboard, paper, and clothing/textiles at two locations. These stations, one of which is pictured below, have collected over 1.2 million lbs of materials for reuse and recycling to date. To further their waste reduction and recycling efforts, in 2015 the Town partnered with the Bethlehem Central School District and the Delmar Farmer’s Market to offer Annual Spring and Fall Reuse and Recycling Events. These events feature free secure document shredding, along with the collection of clothing/textiles, sewing/knitting supplies, books, plastic toys, scrap metal, appliance and electronics. The first four events collected over 120,000 lbs of reusable and recyclable materials. Congratulations to the Town of Bethlehem! Stay tuned for more accomplishments from the Town of Bethlehem accomplishments this Fall.
