On April 5, Gershow Recycling took part in the 14th annual St. Patrick’s Day Parade in Patchogue Village. Employees at Gershow proudly displayed the company’s banner during the parade with the slogan "Long Island’s Greenest Company for Over 45 Years.” For Gershow Recycling, the "wearing of the green” signifies the company’s commitment to preserving the environment through its recycling of scrap metal and paper products.
Gershow volunteers distributed the "Going Green” activity coloring books to children along the parade route. These activity books teach children about preserving the environment in a fun and educational way.
Activity books are available as a community service in limited quantities and for a limited time. To request activity books or shopping bags, click here.
