Yardley Borough’s 5th Annual Recycling Day Set for Saturday, April 25th

The Yardley Borough Environmental Advisory Commission, with the support of the Yardley Business Association, as well as Yardley Shade Tree Commission celebrate our annual recycling event as well as Arbor Day on Saturday 25 April 2015 from 9am until 1pm in Buttonwood park, adjacent to the Yardley Town Center.

This highly successful event is in the 5th year now, and has been steadily growing to include a shred event, electronics recycling, and this year, we are adding a gently used toy collection to the mix.

We ask all participants enter through the Main Street entrance, between Firehouse Cycles and the Face and Body Spa. Our team of volunteers will direct you to the areas in which we are accepting the items you plan to recycle or shred.

“Marching Out” French and Indian War Event

Join us as we journey back to the 1760’s, a time just before the American Revolution, when New Jersey was embroiled in another earlier conflict known as the French and Indian War. Come see first-hand what military life was like in the colonies before we fought to become an independent nation. Visitors are invited to experience a typical day in the life of a soldier stationed at the barracks, and to interact with the people who cooked, slept, drilled, and lived within these walls. Take a tour of the barracks itself, which was built in 1758 for the purpose of housing these British forces.
