SARATOGA SPRINGS — Sustainable Saratoga will hold their 5th annual Saratoga Recycles Day from 9 a.m.  – noon, on Saturday, Oct. 2 in the SPAC overflow parking lot on the west side of Route 50. 

There are COVID-related safety protocols in place again this year – masks are required; exact change is requested to minimize the handling of money; donation items should be organized by drop-off station to reduce physical contact; and participants should remain in their vehicles at all times.

Anyone can participate. There are no residency requirements for this event. Cost is $5 per vehicle fee, plus $30 per TV or monitor (limit of 4 TVs per vehicle). 

This year, as always, Sustainable Saratoga is collecting items for a wide range of local nonprofits, including Bikeatoga, Pitney Meadows Community Farm, We Are Instrumental, Wellspring, Backstretch Employees Service Team (B.E.S.T.), Domestic Violence Project of Warren & Washington Counties, and the Saratoga Springs Lions Club.
