S.A.F.E. Disposal Event - April 8th

Spring Cleaning? Disposal event - April 8th

April 8th 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
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!


  • Appliances (Appliances with CFC/Freon (refrigerators, air conditioners & dehumidifiers): Contact 311 to make an appointment for CFC removal, then recycle curbside. 
  • Household Appliances: Remove batteries and recycle curbside. (Alternatively, for small working household appliances consider taking them to the Downtown Brooklyn Stop 'N' Swap on April 19th)
  • Tires: Bring back to businesses that sell them, bring to a DSNY Household Special Waste Drop-Off Site, or to any DSNY garage.
