Weigh in on Glen Cove and the Environment

The Town of Oyster Bay has announced a new green initiative. How environmentally friendly is Glen Cove?

We learned this week that the Town of Oyster Bay has unveiled a new initiative designed to be more environmenally friendly.

The town has a new compressed natural gas fueling station at the Department of Public Works in Syosset. Officials say it will cut the town's petroleum usage by about 264,000 a year and reduce greenhouse gases by 27 percent.

It got us thinking about the environment in Glen Cove. With a location on the coast and several preserves in the area, we'd like to know if you consider Glen Cove strong on environmental issues.

Take our poll below and weigh in with your comments.

I am not able to recycle in glen cove nearly as much as I did when I lived in New York City. Please correct me if I'm wrong, but we are not able to recycle cardboard like cereal boxes, pasta boxes, or magazines, junk mail et cetera. I would guess that those things make up about a quarter of my garbage. it would be nice if our recycling program included more household garbage like that.

Turn Photocircus into the completely off-the-grid solar power generating station it could be; that could power most of this town independent of LIPA and give a whole lot of us other things to spend our money on, and we'll talk.
