Council Member Mariann Dalimonte to Host Shrink Wrap Recycling Program at Manorhaven Beach Park
North Hempstead, NY – Council Member Mariann Dalimonte is proud to be announcing that the Town will be hosting a shrink wrap recycling program during the month of April. The program will allow boaters and Town residents to recycle their shrink wrap materials, helping to reduce waste and protect the environment.
Shrink wrap is a popular material used to protect boats and other outdoor equipment during the winter months. The shrink wrap produced from wrapping a boat can result in more than 15 pounds of plastic. This plastic is then bound for landfills where it can take hundreds of years to break down.
"This is a great opportunity for our community to come together and make a real difference for our environment," said Council Member Mariann Dalimonte. "By recycling our shrink wrap materials, we can help to reduce waste and ensure that our planet remains a beautiful place to live for future generations."
The shrink wrap recycling program at Manorhaven Beach Park is designed to address this issue by providing a convenient and environmentally friendly way for people to dispose of their shrink wrap. This is open to all members of the community, and participants will be able to drop off their shrink wrap materials at the designated recycling containers located in the parking lot.
