Get Rid Of Potentially Harmful Household Products At Sanitation Department Event In Brooklyn

Spring 2013 NYC SAFE Disposal Events
(Solvents, Automotive, Flammable, Electronics)



Don't know what to do about those old paint cans that you have accumulated during various home improvement projects?  Do you have some old electronics that you want to get rid of?  How about old household cleaning products that you don't use any more?
Community Board 6 just sent around news of a NYC Department of Sanitation SAFE event, at which you will be able to dispose of some of these more dangerous.
One of these events will be held in Brooklyn.

Brooklyn SAFE Disposal Event
Sunday, April 7
10am-4pm Prospect Park, 
Park Circle corner of Parkside Ave & Prospect Park SW
 (cars approach from Ocean Ave & Lincoln Rd)


The NYC Department of Sanitation is holding five SAFE Disposal Events this spring (one in each borough) to provide NYC residents with a one-stop method to get rid of potentially harmful household products. If you cannot attend any of the events, see harmful household products.
The blue and green recycling bin mascots will make appearances at all the SAFE disposal events.

Commonly used household products can be harmful to you, your family, your pets, city workers, and the environment if improperly stored, used, or discarded.
