Farmingville, NY – On October 2, Councilwoman Jane Bonner held an E-Waste Collection, Paper Shredding and Drug Take Back event at the Rose Caracappa Senior Center in Mount Sinai. The event, which was Councilwoman Bonner’s second of the year, provided the opportunity for residents to safely dispose of unused electronic devices, have their old paper documents securely shredded, and to safely dispose of old prescription drugs. Members of the Suffolk County Sheriff’s Department were on-hand to accept the prescription drugs for disposal. More than 450 cars stopped by to recycle 14,200 lbs. of paper, 10,620 lbs. of e-waste and 10 boxes of unwanted prescription drugs for proper disposal. All of the Town of Brookhaven’s 2021 recycling events are co-sponsored by DIME Community Bank.

Councilwoman Bonner said, “My second recycling event of the year was an overwhelming success thanks to all the residents who stopped by to drop off old papers, e-waste and prescription drugs. I thank the Town’s Department of Recycling and Sustainable Materials Management and the Sheriff’s Department for helping to make this event a success.”
