Farmingville, NY – On April 29, 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 first of the year, provided resident with the opportunity to dispose of unused electronic devices, have old paper documents securely shredded, and to safely discard unused prescription drugs. Officers from the Suffolk County Sheriff’s Department were on-hand to accept the prescription drugs. During the event, 532 cars stopped by to recycle 17,400 lbs. of paper, 7,200 lbs. of e-waste and 14 boxes of unwanted prescription drugs for proper disposal.
