The village will hold its second collection of household appliances and electronic waste this Saturday, October 25th between 11am-1pm at the DPW facility, 65 Brookside Ave. For proper recycling of all household appliances and electronics, bring your unwanted items to us….TV, computer, laptop, monitor, scanner, printer, microwave, toaster, radio, copier, VCR, CD player, telephone, cell phone, games console, uninterrupted power supply… “If it plugs into a wall, we’ll take it!”
We are again partnering with ARC of Rockland to help keep these recyclable items out of the landfill. Please spread the word about the collection event with your neighbors.
Our Task Force met last week with the Thruway’s environmental compliance officer who explained the procedures used to measure the noise from pile driving and presented measurement reports showing that noise from the sheet pile driving has been just below the maximum limits allowed by the contract. The measurements were made using hand-held instruments and recorded the maximum (Lmax) levels. The Thruway says they will continue to spot check the levels during sheet pile driving to make sure the sound dampening mitigation continue to be effectively used. The sheet pile driving next to the trestle should be finishing up in the next couple of weeks with additional sheet pile driving needed in early 2017 to extend the new bridge abutment. The Thruway agreed to warn us before any new, particularly loud activity takes place and to work to ensure that all noise is within allowable limits.
A new temporary variable message sign (VMS) is being installed along the southbound NYS Thruway west of exit 10 in South Nyack. The new VMS will alert drivers about congestion and other traffic issues on the Tappan Zee Bridge and will replace an existing overhead sign.
