S.A.F.E. Disposal Event - April 2nd

Time to clean out and dispose of all those harmful household products!!

April 2nd from 10am to 4pm the NYC Department of Sanitation will be holding a S.A.F.E. (Solvents, Automotive, Flammable, Electronics) Disposal Event at Prospect Park Park Circle, corner of Parkside Ave & Prospect Park SW. 

So take the time to start your spring cleaning and pull out all those dusty cans and items that have been hanging around! They say you can bring a variety of items such as: 
  • Automotive products such as motor oil, transmission fluid, and batteries
  • Personal care items like unwanted medicines or cosmetics
  • Thermometers
  • Syringes (clearly labeled and packaged in a “sharps” container or other leak proof, puncture-resistant container)
  • Household products such as pesticides, paint, hazardous cleaners, compact fluorescent lightbulbs
  • Electronics – check the list of items that are considered electronics. (Recycle other appliances
The Dept of Sanitation has a more complete list here. Be sure to bring ID though, as this is only for NYC residents and for NYC residential waste!
