The Pleasantville Music Festival zero-waste numbers are in, and they are impressive: a huge leap in our compostable waste (3740 lbs) and a continuing climb in what we were able to recycle (624 lbs). That's a whopping 4364 lbs of materials diverted from the waste stream, way more than ever before.
To everyone who came and sorted their own waste, sorted other people's waste, brought reusable bottles, reused other containers, avoided single-use plastics, helped clean up, asked questions, and had a good time--thank you! Together, we made a real difference.
Take a look at the first batch of RBI Bag Art Contest Entries. These amazing designs come from students at Bedford Road School.
Thank you to all who participated. We absolutely LOVE them! We will let you know as soon as the judges have a chance to review and are back with a winner!
Stay tuned for the PMS contest- starting soon!
YES! Cartons are Recyclable!
NOW! The Village of Pleasantville accepts cartons for recycling! The last drop of milk, juice or soup does not mark the end of a carton’s useful life. Made mainly from high-quality paper, cartons are easily recyclable and in high demand by manufacturers of recycled products.
HOW? Simply place your cartons in your recycling bin with your plastic, metal and glass containers.
WOW! After cartons are collected curbside, they are taken to a materials recycling facility to be sorted and baled. The bales of recycled cartons are then shipped to paper mills, where cartons are mixed with water in a gigantic blender to extract all the paper fiber. These recycled carton paper fibers are a valuable resource for making products such as recycled paper products and even building materials.
