The treasure in trash

Pallets come in from collection sites stacked and wrapped and ready for processing. Once weighed, items are separated, evaluated for potential re-use or broken down.


In collaboration with ARC, the Pike County Commissioners, Blooming Grove Township Supervisors and Dutch’s Market will host a household electronics recycling event on July 21, from 8 a.m. to 1 p.m. The event is open to all Pike County residents free of charge. Drop-off locations are at the Blooming Grove Township Municipal Building on Route 739, Blooming Grove; and Dutch’s Market on Route 507, Greentown. Businesses must pre-register by July 12 by contacting Bob Travers at 845/858-8809 or emailing rtravers@advancedrecovery.com. Monitors, printers, keyboards, VCRs, terminals, cables, fax machines, radios, modems, CRTs, copiers, typewriters and stereo equipment will be accepted. For more information, call Christine Kerstetter at 570/296-3434.
