The Town of Brookhaven will host two special "post-holiday" residential shredding and e-waste drop off events for residents to "recycle their old paper documents" and "safely dispose of unused electronic devices," this Saturday in Mount Sinai at the Rose Caracappa Senior Center.
Overseeing the event is Supervisor Ed Romaine, Councilman Tim Mazzei and Councilwoman Jane Bonner. “Many residents will be getting new electronic items for Christmas and we can help them dispose of the old ones in a way that is not harmful to the environment,” said Supervisor Romaine in a statement.
Councilwoman Jane Bonner, who represents Council District 2, where Rose Caracappa Senior Center is located said, “Our last e-waste event at Rose Caracappa, was a huge success with over 15,000 pounds collected. We should all make recycling our New Year’s resolution and this is a great way to get started.”
Residents are urged to bring the following items to be recycled:
- VCR & DVD players
- Computer mice
- Hard Drives
- Electronic Typewriters
- Circuit boards
- Power Supplies
- Backup batteries
- Cell phones
- Answering machine
- Fax machines
