Spring 2013
NYC SAFE Disposal Events

(Solvents, Automotive, Flammable, Electronics)

The NYC Department of Sanitation is holding five SAFE Disposal Events this spring (one in each borough) to provide NYC residents with a one-stop method to get rid of potentially harmful household products. If you cannot attend any of the events, see harmful household products.

The blue and green recycling bin mascots will make appearances at all the SAFE disposal events. Check out the mobile Recyclarium exhibit at the Manhattan SAFE disposal event.
