New Windsor to tout benefits of recycling

The New Windsor Town Council has voted to advertise the merits of recycling.

During Wednesday night's meeting, the council said they would use money from the sanitation fund -- about 50 cents from each household -- to buy ads promoting the recycling effort.

"Our hauler said that the first few months are usually really good, but then the amount starts to dwindle out," said Richard Warehime, the town clerk.

"We saved $240 in landfill fees by recycling in one month, and I think the money would be well spent in order to continue our success."

The five towns that contract for recycling with Haden trash removal -- Union Bridge, New Windsor, Westminster, Taneytown and Hampstead -- have decided to raise $3,500, which will be matched by the hauler, to purchase television and newspaper ads to reach the most people.
