S.T.O.P. Program & Homeowners Cleanup Program

 

Town of Oyster Bay residents are urged to bring all household and hazardous waste to one of the offered homeowners recycling programs such as the S.T.O.P. Collection days or a Homeowners Cleanup event. These programs are hosted at the Town of Oyster Bay Solid Waste Disposal Complex for your convenience.

 

Improperly disposing of products such as waste oil, oven cleaner, paint thinner, spot remover or photo chemicals may contaminate your own water supply. Long Island depends upon an underground aquifer system for its water supply. Anything poured on the ground or put into cesspools, storm drains, or recharge systems can work its way down into the aquifer or our harbors and bays.

 

Latex Paint, e-Waste, and Motor Oil can be dropped during regular operating hours.

ELECTRONIC WASTE RECYCLING PROGRAM

e-Waste Recycling is held on the same dates as the S.T.O.P. Program and Homeowners Cleanup.

 

The Town of Oyster Bay continues its leadership role in recycling by initiating the first regularly scheduled Electronic Waste Recycling program on Long Island. The program addresses the growing nationwide problem of e-waste, such as computers, cell phones, pagers and VCRs. These items not only have a low level of biodegradability, but they contain materials such as lead, mercury and cadmium that are highly toxic when released into the environment. This program ensures these items will not wind up in a landfill or incinerator.

 

What you CAN bring to Electronic Waste Recycling Collections

Computers & computer monitors

Small scale servers

Cathode ray tubes

Hard drives

Laptops

Electronic or video game consoles

Digital cameras

Electronic keyboards

Portable digital music players

Telephones

Cell phones

Televisions & cable/satellite receivers

Digital video recorders

Digital converter boxes

Stereos, speakers & radio equipment

Electronic mice or similar pointing devices

VCR’s & DVD’s

Microwave ovens

Computer peripherals & small electronic equipment (including any cable, cord, or wiring permanently affixed to or incorporated into the computer peripheral or small electronic equipment.)

Copiers, fax machines, printers and scanners (only those intended for use with a computer and weighing less than 100 lbs.)

 

 

You don’t have to store Electronic Waste between Electronic Waste Collection dates.
