Village of Pelham: Oakridge picking up appliances Saturday
I hope you are beginning to see some light at the end of the tunnel as we continue to recover from last week’s storm.
Sanitation crews from Oakridge were out today picking up white goods (appliances) throughout the Village. If they did not get to you today, they will be back in the Village tomorrow, so please leave any remaining white goods curbside.
On Tuesday, September 14, Congressman Bowman’s office is holding a FEMA Assistance and Local Resources Webinar for residents going through the process of what to do after the storm. You can register for the event here: https://us06web.zoom.us/
