The Liberty Grove Town Board and the Sister Bay Village Board have authorized a cooperative venture to increase recycling and protect the environment.
All residents, business owners or operators, and owners of property in the Village of Sister Bay and the Town of Liberty Grove are encouraged to participate in a Shredding/Appliance Recycling Day on Sept. 19. There will be no charge to have documents securely shredded or to recycle most computer components, copiers/printers/fax machines, telephones and cell phones, DVD players/VCRs, stereos/CD players, rechargeable batteries, washers, dryers and stoves, big and small household appliances, and anything metal. Fees of $5 will be charged to recycle monitors and anything containing Freon. It could cost up to $20 per unit to recycle a television.
Any documents to be shredded as well as any appliances or computer components to be recycled should be brought to the parking lot at the Liberty Grove Town Hall (11161 Old Stage Road) between 9 am and 1 pm. Before large items will be placed on the truck any and all recycling fees must be paid.
Computer monitors contain harmful elements like mercury, lead, cadmium, and other substances that can be extremely harmful if they are disposed of improperly. It’s always best to try to recycle electronics so that they do not sit in a landfill or cause any other environmental problems.
For more information, contact the employees in the Administration Office (920.854.4118) or the employees at the Town Hall (920.854.2934).
