Youngsville Life

Photo submitted to Times Observer Volunteers from Cummins, Inc. “Every Employee, Every Community” (EEEC) program graciously helped the Youngsville Public Library Director set up for their Annual Book & Bake “sale” fundraiser last Thursday. Through the EEEC program Cummins, Inc. encourages its employees to volunteer their time to help organizations within the community and actually pays the employees as if they were working on-site at the plant. 2019 marks the seventh year that Youngsville Public Library has been able to take advantage of this incredible program. Special thanks to Mary Seybert who once again helped organize and recruit Cummins volunteers. This year’s volunteers were (clockwise from bottom left): Mary Seybert, April Rickerson, Whitney Parker, Todd Seybert, Jim Fithian, and Phil Bosko.

Free Community Recycling Day

Saturday, September 14th from 9:00 am – 12:30 pm Cummins Engine Plant (4720 Baker St. Lakewood, NY) is offering their annual free Community Recycling Day for the general public. This is meant to be a community event, no businesses please. The drop-off location is at the above address at the employee driveway. There will be signs clearly marking the drop-off area. Although Cummins reserves the right to light quantities, Cummins will collect: batteries (lead-acid, alkaline, NiCad, NiMH, & Lithium), oil based paints and stains, electronic devices (televisions, computers, stereos, etc.), used motor oil (containers no larger than 5 gallons), fluorescent bulbs (all types), scrap metal, auto & Lt truck tires (limit 8 per vehicle, no rims), confidential record destruction (limit 4 banker boxes per vehicle), and gently used coats.
