Our NEW Fundraiser – For Pollinators!

TEAC, in cooperation with the Warner Library, is planning to engage our volunteers to build a 150-square-foot garden of beautiful plants that will attract beneficial, pollinating insects on the side lawn of the Library. To offset our costs for materials for this, and possibly other planting projects around the Village, we have launched a “Books and Bees” fundraiser on GoFundMe. To help with this project, please visit this link and make a generous, tax-deductible donation:

Food Scrap drop-off update

Food Scraps Drop-Off Location
The food scrap drop-off toters are now on Green St: Cross the “H” bridge over the MNR tracks, turn Left (South) and travel along the street past the commuter parking lots. The drop-off is on the right, just before the Losee Park ballfield. (See the MAP HERE.)


Also, we have had some incidents of our carter refusing to pick up any toter that has plastic or other non-compostable trash visible. Please be extra careful to keep your food scraps “clean” and only use labeled-compostable bags that are available for $2/roll at the Library and the Tarrytown Rec Center.
If you happen to see trash in a food scrap toter, we’d appreciate your help by removing it to the nearby trash dumpster. As you can imagine, a toter left un-collected for more than a few days will become a nuisance.
