Safe Disposal Event
Sunday, April 2nd, 10:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m.
The NYC Department of Sanitation holds a SAFE Disposal Event (Solvents, Automotive, Flammable, Electronics) in each borough to provide residents with a one-stop method to dispose of harmful household products safely.
Materials accepted at the event include common household products, such as auto fluids, motor oil, automotive batteries, batteries, electronics, mobile phones, compact fluorescent bulbs, thermostats, thermometers, strong cleaners, medications, medical items (including syringes and lancets), paint, and more.
Appliances, air conditioners, dehumidifiers, refrigerators, and tires are not accepted.
The event in Brooklyn will take place on Sunday, April 2nd, from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. It will be at Prospect Park Park Circle, at the corner of Parkside Avenue and Prospect Park Southwest. Cars can enter along Parkside Avenue from Ocean Avenue and Lincoln Road.
The event will be held rain or shine. Because so many people participate in these events, be prepared to be on line for a while.
Only New York City residential waste is accepted at SAFE Disposal Events. No commercial vehicles will be allowed. Residents must provide proof of their New York City residency, such as a New York State driver’s license or utility bill.
