What many people don’t realize is that there are recycling numbers at the bottom of the plastic bottles and packaging, including feed bags, etc. These numbers represent what kind of plastic that bottle falls under.  It also helps people determine whether that plastic is considered safe or not.  Numbers 3, 6, and 7 are not accepted. It is absolutely vital to find out whether or not the plastic you get your foods out of or store things in is safe.  Each recycling number has a particular classification to it to determine whether, relatively, it is safe or extremely dangerous and attention should be paid to that fact. Gardiner Recycling is very vigilant about what is acceptable and what is not. Recycling Centers, inclusing Gardiner's, will not accept items with numbers 3, 6, and 7. No exceptions. Here's why. 


Expedited Solar Permit Process for Small-Scale Photovoltaic Systems
There is now a streamlined Expedited Solar Permit Process for Small-Scale Photovoltaic Systems. The expedited solar permitting process uses a unified permit across municipalities in New York State. A combined building and electrical permit for a grid?tied photovoltaic (PV) system will be issued pending proper completion of forms, submission of approved plans and approval by municipality.

This year we'll be handing out clear recycling bags as well as orange bags for the town-wide clean-up on April 19.

No brush Burning! DEC places a State ban on residential brush burning beginning March 16 to May 14
Each year, the DEC places a State ban on residential brush burning beginning March 16 to May 14 during High Fire-Risk Season. While the burn ban regulation allows residential brush burning for most of the year in towns with a populations of less than 20,000, it prohibits open burning in all communities during early spring when the bulk of New York's wildfires typically occur. The state regulation prohibits the burning of garbage at all times and in all places.


Controlled burns at Mohonk Preserve, Minnewaska State Park Preserve and Sam’s Point Apr - Dec
Between April and December, 2014, the Shawangunk Ridge Biodiversity Partnership is planning to conduct up to several hundred acres of controlled burns at Mohonk Preserve, Minnewaska State Park Preserve and Sam’s Point Preserve.  I have attached a map indicating all of the potential burn locations; however, the exact location, date and time of the individual controlled burns will depend on the weather conditions leading up to and during the scheduled burn day.

All appropriate emergency services and local officials are being notified of our burn window, and prescribed burn unit plans for each burn have approved by the NY State Department of Environmental Conservation.  In addition, we will be notifying town officials, local volunteer fire department chiefs, NYS DEC, state and local law enforcement and Ulster County emergency services on the morning that any burn is scheduled to take place.
