Operation Clean Sweep - Roadside Cleanup
Name: Operation Clean Sweep - Roadside Cleanup
Date: April 20, 2019 - April 28, 2019
Every year, the Warwick Valley Chamber of Commerce sponsors an official roadside cleanup event throughout the entire town of Warwick. Grab your trash bag and join in the fun, Saturday April 20th through Sunday April 28th! Operation Clean Sweep is coordinated by the Warwick Valley Chamber of Commerce and Warwick Valley Middle School student Elizabeth Verboys. Various groups, clubs, and individuals take part by pre-registering their routes in order to ensure garbage pickup by DPW. (Please note that this is for roadside refuse, not homeowner garbage.) Please call 845-986-2720 to register your road in advance, or come in person on Saturday, April 27th from 8:00am – 12:30pm to the Caboose at South Street to register your road and enjoy free refreshments. Garbage bags and gloves will be available to anyone who registers and can be picked up at the South Street Caboose at any time. On Saturday, April 27th at the parking lot adjacent to the Caboose, various programs will be offered. Between 9:00am – 12:00pm, the National Coalition Against Domestic Violence will be collecting used cell phones and the Warwick Valley Coalition will be hosting an unused prescription pill drop-off in conjunction with the DEA between 9:00am – 12:00pm. Also, the Warwick Lions Club will host old eyeglass and hearing aid collection as well as a shredding truck in the South Street parking lot between 9:30am – 12:30pm. There is a suggested $5 donation per box or bag. Businesses, organizations and individuals with large shredding amounts are encouraged to pre-schedule their drop-off time by calling Sara Werling at 845-986-1177 ext. 302. Programs offered offsite include electronics recycling at The Computer Guy at 2 Overlook Drive and motor oil collection and recycling at Leo Kaytes Ford, 145 Route 94 South.
