Renovated Glen Rock Recycling Center Opening Thursday

The $700,000 project to add parking spots for nearby athletics while upgrading the recycling center facility is officially complete, according to the borough.

The following news release was sent by the Borough of Glen Rock. Check out more photos of the renovation project at the Borough's Facebook page.

The Borough of Glen Rock is pleased to announce that the newly renovated Recycling Center will open its gates tomorrow morning, Thursday, October 18, 2012, at 7:30 a.m.

Among other amenities, the new Center boasts two restrooms for Recycling Center and Recreation Field patrons, ample parking with handicap accessible spaces, and wider access for vehicles. Residents can rest assured knowing that the new facility will be closely monitored with 24-hour video surveillance.

The Borough asks that residents observe the 15 mph speed limit and proceed with caution while entering and exiting the landfill, as this is an area with a high level of pedestrian traffic.

The Borough also asks that residents follow signs and arrows, and limit parking to the many designated parking spaces. Residents should note that No Parking Zones will be strictly enforced, with summons issued for violations.

The Borough is thrilled to announce the completion of this extensive renovation, proud to offer the community of Glen Rock a new and improved Recycling Center, and confident that residents will be satisfied with the results.

I think it looks great and kudos to the mayor for taking the consideration of all the residents on Doremus Ave. If there is one thing that still needs to be looked at is to why all the lights must stay on for the entire night.

I Agree with the previous comment: The parking lot is lit up like a professional stadium all night long, which seems to be completely unnecessary and a waste of energy. I hope that they can be turned off at the point where the parking lot should be empty - i.e. any events at the fields have ended.
