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.
“This event gives the opportunity for our constituents to securely discard household items in addition to reduces waste sent to landfills, conserves resources, helps protect the environment and saves energy. I encourage everyone to come and participate,” said Assemblyman Miller.
