If Santa brought you a new ipod, phone or other electronic goody and you don't know what to do with the old one bring it on down to the town.
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.
“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 Brookhaven Town Supervisor Ed Romaine in a statement.
According to the town, over 15,000 pounds of waste were collected at last year's event.
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
- Gameboys & other hand held electronic toys
The events will be on Saturday, Jan. 18 at Rose Caracappa Senior Center in Mt. Sinai from 9:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m.
