Farmingville, NY - Councilman Neil Foley has announced a new date for the E-Waste Collection, Paper Shredding and Drug Take Back event which was postponed earlier this year. The new date is Saturday, October 30 from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. at the Blue Point Fire Department Headquarters located at 205 Blue Point Avenue. Councilman Foley’s E-Waste Collection, Paper Shredding and Drug Take Back event provides the opportunity for residents to safely dispose of unused electronic devices, have their old paper documents securely shredded and safely dispose of old prescription drugs. This special recycling event is co-sponsored the Town of Brookhaven and DIME Community Bank. For more information, call Councilman Foley’s office at 631-451-6645, or visit www.BrookhavenNY.gov. Residents are urged to bring the following electronic items to be recycled:
Documents brought in for shredding will be placed into a 65-gallon container and then into the shredder, enabling each participant to witness the secure destruction of sensitive papers. Paper can be brought in boxes or bags. Documents can remain stapled together, but paper clips and other metal must be removed along with any other contaminants such as rubber bands.
