Operation Clean Sweep will kick into high gear on Sat., Apr. 28 and Sun., Apr. 29. Bags and gloves are available at the Warwick Chamber of Commerce caboose on South St. Pick up supplies, and join your community in a roadside clean-up effort. Leave the full bags at intersections of your road, and the Warwick DPW will pick them up. Tipping fees are waived for us that day at the County Transfer Station, and we thank our County officials for that courtesy. On Sat., Apr. 28 the Warwick Lions will be in the Chase lot on South St. to shred your documents, recycle old eyeglasses and hearing aids. There will be a pill drop with the Warwick Coalition and the Warwick Police Department. Old oil can be recycled at Leo Kaytes Ford, and the Computer Guy is accepting certain electronics at their West St. location. Join in to help keep our community clean.
The Town will host the Warwick Valley Gardeners, in collaboration with the Warwick Shade Tree Commission, as they celebrate Arbor Day 2018. Please join us at the Thomas P. Morahan Waterfront Park at 11 a.m. on Fri., Apr. 27 for the planting of some beautiful trees!
In further celebration of Arbor Day and our designation as a “Tree City,” please visit the beautiful Arbor Day posters created by the very talented young people from our Warwick School District that are on display in the lobby of Town Hall. We are lucky to have such creative artists.
