The village of Scarsdale received the Westchester County Eco Award on April 22 for two programs started within the past year — the installation of a collection pod for used furniture collection and a Take It or Leave It (TiLi) station, both at the Scarsdale Recycling Center, 110 Secor Road.
Residents can bring their furniture and certain household items to the furniture pod; items are then picked up and distributed by Furniture Sharehouse, a local nonprofit that distributes the furniture for free to those in need throughout the county. At the TiLi station, residents and nonresidents can drop off their unwanted items and/or take whatever they’d like. Sporting goods, toys, baby and household items, tools and gardening equipment are all acceptable. All textiles (clothes, shoes, belts, hats, sheets, towels) should still go in the nearby textile recycling bins.
