Dear Islander,

The Fishers Island Waste Management District has been looking for viable solutions to help reduce the amount of waste that is shipped off the island. One of the areas of concern is the amount of bottles and cans that are sent off. While the flow in the off seasons slows down, during the summer months, a thirty yard dumpster will fill in a day and a half. The bottle and can dumpsters are the highest quantity of dumpsters sent out each month. In an effort to reduce this, the District recently purchased a glass grinding machine. This machine will grind the glass down to both 1/8” and 3/8” particles. The glass can then be used as a clean fill. Taking the glass out of the trash flow will help reduce the quantity of dumpsters leaving the island and also put the glass to good use.
Starting January 1, 2018, all glass containers will have to be collected separate from plastic and metal. The containers are to be rinsed cleaned and will be collected in special “GLASS ONLY” dumpsters at the Transfer Station. The District has purchased 13 gallon recycling totes for each residence on the island. These will be made available for free (one per residence) and can be picked up at the District Office during normal business hours. We will notify you when they are available in early December. Please remember, any glass container should be rinsed clean before depositing at the Transfer Station.
