Free Recycling

Here is a press release we issued this afternoon! Hope to everyone there!


Friends of Tutunjian Sponsors Free Recycling Day at E-Lot
Mayor Harry Tutunjian Will Be Endorsed By the New York League of Conservation Voters as Part of Wednesday’s Event at 3 p.m.

For Immediate Release

(October 8, 2007- TROY)- The Friends of Harry Tutunjian will sponsor a free recycling day at the Troy-based electronics recycler E-Lot as part of an event that will focus on the Mayor receiving the endorsement of the New York League of Conservation Voters.

Tutunjian said Monday we was thrilled to pick up the endorsement of the League of Conservation Voters, proclaiming that the City of Troy is on a momentous run, and that the endorsement lends credence to the idea of balancing development and conservation that Tutunjian has talked about during his first term.

“Troy is a City full of two important things- historic resources and potential,” Tutunjian said. “Not every city can claim that, but the City of Troy certainly is able. For the past four years we have attempted to balance these two assets to ensure the City of Troy is able to capitalize not on one or the other, but both.”

Tutunjian said he was excited for Wednesday’s event, asking that any resident in Troy that needs to recycle old electronics take advantage of the free opportunity.

“If you have an old computer or VCR taking up space the house, come down to E-Lot and drop it off,” Tutunjian said. “It will clear up space for you; safely discard any information stored, all while effectively recycling. It is something everyone should take advantage of.”

E-Lot is an electronics recycler located at 8000 Main Street in South Troy on the former King Fuels site. For a complete list of what can be recycled at the business, please visit E-Lot will be open from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Wednesday.

All members of the media are encouraged to attend the endorsement, which will take place at 3 p.m. in front of E-Lot. Members of the NYLCV will be on hand.
