Livingston Students Recognized for Volunteerism at Local Events


LIVINGSTON, NJ — Members of the Livingston High School Science National Honor Society were recognized at the Livingston Township Council meeting on Monday for being instrumental in the success of this year’s local electronic recycling and paper shredding events.

According to Renee Resky, chairperson of the Livingston Recycling and Reclamation Committee, 41 volunteers participated in the most recent event on Oct. 7 thanks to two young women who served as the project directors of the Science National Honor Society.

“These two young ladies deserve special recognition as the project directors,” said Resky. “They were instrumental in creating a video to advertise our electronics recycling events this year and also recruiting over 65 volunteers throughout the year.”

In conjunction with the township council, the Livingston Recycling and Reclamation Committee hosts three electronics recycling and paper shredding events each year.

Since the inception of these events in 2007, more than 1000 tons of electronics and 200 tons of paper has been recycled. According to Resky, more than 140 tons of electronics and 32 tons of paper has been collected in 2017 alone, in no small part due to the growing volunteerism of local students.

“We couldn’t do [this] without these volunteers,” said Resky. “They come and take the recycling out of your cars and take it to the shredding trucks, make sure all the cardboard is put into the containers where they’re supposed to go and keep the lines moving smoothly throughout the day, so we really appreciate all your work.”

On behalf of the entire township, Livingston Mayor Shawn Klein extended his gratitude to the volunteers and to Resky for her continued dedication to this endeavor.

“These recycling events take a lot of effort to coordinate, and I can tell you...there has not been a year where there have been more volunteers who have done more work and worked harder than you guys have,” said Klein, who also serves as the council liaison to the committee. “These have been very successful events and it helps to keep our town recycling and clean, so thank you very much.”

Resky also announced that in celebration of America Recycles Day on Nov. 15, members of the committee will be at the Livingston Public Library from 10 a.m. to 8 p.m. on that date with posters and informational handouts on display to help residents learn about proper recycling. She encouraged all interested residents to attend.

Cluelessly Clueless

I teenaged my way through high school under the assumption that my parents had no idea what I was doing.  I like to think I was pretty good at withholding information and presenting situations in ways that were other than they really were.


Still, sometimes they found things out.  Like the time my friends plopped me on our front door step at one o'clock in the morning ...
