S.T.O.P. Hazardous Waste Collection Program

Date: Sunday, October 18, 2015
Time: 8:00 am - 3:00 pmNorth Woodmere Park
Branch Blvd. & Hungry Harbor Rd., North Woodmere

Legislator Denise Ford 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, October 18, 2015 from 8am to 3pm. The drop site is located at North Woodmere Park.

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.
