Glen Cove residents were happy to dispose of their dated technology devices, TVs and computers at Glen Cove’s recent E-Waste Collection Day. Mayor Reggie Spinello joined Glen Cove’s sanitation team to thank residents for their participation.
“Our sanitation department does a great job in coordinating these special collection events,” said Spinello.
“Over 300 residents participated in this program and because TVs and other electronics are no longer picked up curbside, our community looks forward to our bi-annual e-waste days,” said Doug Poncet, sanitation supervisor.
Glen Cove’s next community collection will be for the S.T.O.P. (Stop Throwing Out Pollutants) program on Saturday, Oct. 31 from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. at 100 Morris Ave. The S.T.O.P. Program encourages residents to bring old paint (enamel-, lead- and oil- based only, no water- or latex-based paints), paint thinner, household batteries, automobile batteries, automobile tires, brake and transmission fluid, antifreeze, aerosol cans with contents, air conditioning refrigerants, bug and rodent killers, pesticides, insecticides, fertilizers, oven cleaner, rug and upholstery cleaner, polish and wood preservatives, pool chemicals, empty barbeque propane tanks, unused flammable liquids and light bulbs. No electronics, smoke detectors, fireworks, explosives or medical waste. Residential waste is not accepted and proof of residency required.
