Residents May Now Recycle Glass at the Lawton Center

Since Town residents may no longer put glass in their single-stream recycling carts, the Town has set up a central collection point for glass at the Lawton Center.  Residents can drop off clean glass into the green recycling carts, marked “Glass Bottles and Jars Only,” in the loading area behind the Lawton Center.  The loading area is accessible from 44th Street near the intersection of Elm Street.  Residents are reminded to continue using your recycling cart to dispose of all recyclable materials except glass.  The Town’s Climate and Environment Committee will continue to research best recycling practices.



 Farm Women's Market Development Plans Available Online

On October 3, representatives from EYA, partners with the land owner Bernstein Management Corporation, outlined the current status of the Farm Women's Market development plans.  State Delegate Al Carr and County Council Member Hans Reimer attended the presentation.  In addition, representatives of the following elected officials attended the presentation:  Congressman Jamie Raskin, State Delegate Jared Solomon, County Executive Marc Elrich, County Council Member Andrew Friedson, and County Council Member Will Jawando.
 

Redevelopment of this site adjacent to the Town will not only result in a new mixed commercial and residential building on the property that now houses Villain and Saint, but also will incorporate the adjacent Farm Women’s Market and two Montgomery County parking lots (10 and 24) and result in new park space.  If you were unable to make it, the presentation is available here on the Town website.
