On Sunday, September 23rd between 10:00 a.m. and 2:00 pm crews will be at the Forest Park Bandshell to collect certain types of electronic waste.
This event is a great way to preserve the environment by safely and securely disposing of old electronics and household goods.
During their Spring recycling event, Addabbo and Miller helped residents recycle 3.53 tons of paper and 28,390 pounds of unwanted electronics.

There are three bedrooms, three full baths, a living room, dining room, eat-in-kitchen and finished basement with a separate entrance. The boiler is two years old and the roof was installed four years ago. An added feature is a large yard with a deck off the kitchen.
You have the opportunity to help change someone’s life, and it won’t cost you a penny. All you need to do is tell someone you know about the School Sisters of Notre Dame Educational Center for Women right here in Woodhaven.
Perhaps you know a woman who never got the opportunity to finish high school, and that diploma can often be the key to a better future. It can open the door to better job opportunities or maybe even a promotion in a current job. Or maybe a high school diploma can even be the first step in going to college.
In less than a month, the School Sisters of Notre Dame Educational Center for Women will begin holding open registration for their tuition-free high school equivalency diploma classes for the 2018-19 school year.
To register, visit the center at 87-04 88th Avenue, across from St. Thomas the Apostle Church, on Wednesday, September 5, or Thursday, September 6, between 9 a.m. and 1 p.m.
