RYE, N.Y. – County workers said a man tried to turn over a Harley Davidson motorcycle for Westchester County’s Household Material Recovery Days.

The motorcycle was returned to the man, as were several television sets other residents were trying to get rid of, county workers said.

Cars lined up in the Rye Playland parking lot as workers were busy collecting materials residents no longer want or need. The workers accepted everything from automotive fluids, jewelry, fluorescent light bulbs, batteries and car tires over the course of Friday afternoon and Saturday morning and afternoon, as they loaded shredders and sanitation trucks.

The county will host another Household Material Recovery Days event on Sept. 22 at the county recycling center in Yonkers. Still, if residents have materials they still want to dispose of sooner, they can make an appointment to drop items off at the Household Material Recovery Facility at 15 Woods Road in Valhalla. The facility is open from 10 a.m. to 2:50 p.m. Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays. All appointments must be made at least two weeks in advance. For more information, call 914-813-5425.

Two of the most difficult things for consumers to get rid of are old or partial cans of paints and television sets or computer monitors. THAT's what they SHOULD be taking at these events. Otherwise, many people will and do either throw them in a commercial dumpster, usually at night, or leave TV's on the side of a darkened road. It's great to have these events, but they really need to figure out a way to help truly get rid of unwanted materials. BTW, what the article lacked was WHY the man was trying to dispose of his bike. Read more at for real and accurate info on Greenburgh. Otherwise, this is classic Gannett half-azzed reporting.
