Legislator Howard J. Kopel is pleased to announce that the Town of Hempstead Stop Throwing Out Pollutants Hazardous Waste Collection Program (S.T.O.P.) is coming to our area and will take place Sunday, June 24th from 8:00 AM to 3:00 PM. The drop site is located at Bay Park in East Rockaway.

 

Sunday, June 24, 2018

8:00 am – 3:00 pm

Bay Park – East Rockaway (Use 1st Ave. entrance)

 

The Stop Throwing Out Pollutants (S.T.O.P.) Program is designed to provide area residents with a safe, environmentally sound method of disposal of the many hazardous materials found in the average home. By bringing such toxins as antifreeze, drain cleaners and pesticides on any of the scheduled S.T.O.P. collection days, you and your family can make a significant contribution to the protection of our precious groundwater supply and the preservation of our bays and estuaries. Please join with us in cleaning our homes of hazardous material and ensuring their proper collection and disposal. Together we can ensure the continued integrity of our fragile ecosystem.

 

When bringing items, please follow these simple guidelines: Wrap leaking containers in newspaper and place in a plastic bag or larger container. Make sure all caps and lids are tight. Place items securely in a box for transportation. Use newspaper or cardboard to keep items from tipping or hitting each other. Place chemicals which may react with each other in separate areas of the vehicle. Do not leave products in a hot, unventilated vehicle for an extended period of time. Do not smoke near chemical products. Wear rubber gloves when handling containers.

 

Waste from commercial establishments, schools, churches, synagogues or home businesses will not be accepted. No commercial vehicles are permitted. Please note that electronic recycling items will only be collected at E-cycle events.
