Village of Cedarhurst Secures a Grant for a New Garbage Truck

R-L: Cedarhurst Trustee Israel Wasser, Cedarhurst Mayor Benjamin Weinstock, Presiding Officer Legislature Howard J. Kopel, Cedarhurst Trustee Myrna Zisman and Cedarhurst Trustee Daniel Plaut.

Thanks to the support of Presiding Officer Legislature Howard J. Kopel, the Village of Cedarhurst has been awarded Community Revitalization Program Grant, enabling the purchase of a new International CV515 Garbage Truck.

The new garbage truck will be instrumental in maintaining cleanliness in the shopping areas and park, making the process more efficient and safer for our employees. Additionally, it will expedite the unloading of trash at the recycling/transfer station at Sanitary District 1, saving valuable time.  It does not duplicate or replace any of the solid waste services provided by Sanitary District 1.

Custom-built to meet the Village’s specific needs, the truck incorporates the latest safety features and is designed for driver comfort and ease of use. The journey from placing the initial order to delivery took nearly two years, underscoring the Village’s commitment to securing top-quality equipment to provide the best service to its residents.
