GLEN ROCK, NJ - The Glen Rock Dog Park non-profit continues their PLASTIC BAG and WRAP RECYCLING DRIVE during the coronavirus epidemic, collecting 200 pounds in one month.
The drive is coordinated by volunteer Robyn O’Hagan, spouse of former Glen Rock Councilman and Dog Park liaison Michael O’Hagan, in conjunction with the Trex Corporation.
The recycling drive commenced on March 1, and after just one month, with the public's help, Robyn has collected 202 pounds of plastic for recycling! The Glen Rock Dog Park will receive a free Trex bench for the park once 500 pounds of plastic has been collected.
Plastic bags and wrappers such as newspaper sleeves, bubble wrap, dry cleaning bags, cereal box liners and more, which are not currently recycled by the Borough, are still being accepted at collection bins at Mail & More, 233 Rock Road, and JB Pet Supplies 289 Wagaraw Road, Hawthorne. Drop off now or keep saving for drop off in the future.
The Glen Rock NJ Dog Park is completely privately funded and was open and dedicated to the 9/11 Search and Rescue dogs on January 1, 2020. The Glen Rock NJ Dog Park is the only park in the World dedicated to the 9/11 Search and Rescue animals.
