Binny, Bina, deja new, and others welcomed in Lakewood

The NYC council voted on a proposal that would allow for quicker removal of illegal Clothing bins and drop boxes. In Lakewood b'h we are a town of tzedaka vachesed we are proud to host these bins as a way to clothe the needy and fund-raise for mosdos. Ashreinu!! we dont see it as an eyesore-  unlike NYC they complain many bins overflow with uncollected items, are misused as trash receptacles and attract garbage pickers and vermin, opponents say. When sanitation inspectors quickly tag them, the bins’ owners take advantage of regulations giving them 30 days to haul them away.The battle of the bins comes as the textile-recycling market has grown into a $1 billion behemoth in the United States. Most donors don’t realize their old garments will never clothe the needy".

Lakewod buisnesses featured in the news

While Lakewood is not mentioned specifically but this law is very important especially to Lakewood businesses, which many already have complied. With young married women, kollel wives of child bearing age, supplying the vast majority of the workforce in town, this law is not only important but can make working much easier. Under the Affordable Care Act, employers must provide time and space for new mothers to express milk for their babies until the child turns one year old. It should be a room, a separate quiet place, not a bathroom, and let the mother express her milk and have a place to store it.

 Another Lakewood, NJ business is featured in Forbes magazine.
