East Hampton Town Hall will be setting an example for the rest of the town on the recycling.
Supervisor Larry Cantwell said this green initiative stems from the first work session the new town board held on Tuesday. Cantwell, Deputy Town Supervisor Peter Van Scoyoc and council members Kathee Burke-Gonzalez, Sylvia Overby and Fred Overton discussed boosting public participation in recycling at the town’s recycling and sanitation facilities.
“The town needs to set an example,” Cantwell said in a statement. He noted the lack of recycling bins in Town Hall. “If we ask our residents to increase their recycling efforts, the town must do so, as well.”
The goal is to help protect the environment and reduce the town’s garbage-disposal expenses, Cantwell said.
