The Webster Police Department is helping to collect items for the Purple Box Campaign! This campaign is a toy drive for children and families living in the Willow Center’s emergency shelter. One in three women and one in four men are affected by domestic violence and over 70% of these crimes are witnessed by children. A simple gesture of providing new toys can give a child in crisis a sense of normalcy and hope.
The “wish list” of items for small children: infant toys, blocks, Leap Frog toys, bath toys, Super Hero action figures, cars, trucks fire engines, Legos, Lincoln logs, dinosaurs, multicultural baby dolls, multicultural Barbies, play food, tea sets, arts and crafts, board games, card games, stuffed animals and books.
The “wish list” of items for teenagers: video games (e – for everyone), music players (iPod shuffle), sports jerseys, sports hats, purses, makeup, body spray, body wash, pajama pants, journals and hoodies.
You can drop of a new and unwrapped item at the Webster Town Hall. The Purple Box will be located by the doors to the Webster Police Department, and be will be available during Town Hall business hours, 8:30 a.m. – 4:30 p.m., Monday through Friday.
Pharmaceutical Waste Drop Box
During the third quarter (July-September) of this year, the Pharmaceutical Waste Drop Box inside the lobby at Town Hall has taken in 669 pounds of unused, unwanted or expired medication.
This is outstanding being that it is still relatively new and residents are still getting use to having this program at their disposal. This certainly saves Lake Ontario and the landfills from getting these outdated medications and contaminating our water supply or filling our soils with medical contamination.
Another good point about this program is the fact that these medications are not just sitting around so our children can get their hands on these medications which may result in them hurting themselves. The waste drop is open 8:30 a.m. – 4:30 p.m., Monday through Friday. Thank you for your support of this program.
2015 Annual Leaf Pick-Up
The Webster Highway Department has begun the annual Leaf Pick-Up. Every effort will be made to pick up leaves on a weekly basis until the week of Monday, November 30th. At that time, a final pass will be conducted throughout the town, starting from the West side to the East side.
PLEASE DO NOT PLACE LEAVES IN THE GUTTER and/or ROAD! The recent rains have caused flooding in some areas due to plugged gutters and blocked road ways. Please be considerate and place the leaves on the grass in line with your mailbox.
This final pass through town may not take a full week and will depend on the amount of leaves needing to be picked up. This will also end the 2015 Fall Leaf Pick-up season. Any leaves collected after that will need to be bagged and left for your trash collector.
If anyone has any questions regarding the annual Leaf Pick-up, please contact the Highway Department at 872-1443, Monday through Friday between the hours of 7:00 a.m. – 3:30 p.m.
As always, if you have any questions about your town government, please feel free to contact me during regular business hours at (585) 872-7068; or email me anytime at email@example.com
