Saturday offers a chance to properly dispose of household hazardous waste. The Town of Southampton will hold a STOP day — for Stop Throwing Out Pollutants — at the Sag Harbor transfer station on the Bridgehampton-Sag Harbor Turnpike from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m.
Residents can get rid of automotive products like antifreeze, batteries, brake fluid, and oil additives, and household products like oil-based paints and paint strippers, stains and varnishes, silver cleaners, and bathroom cleaners. Lawn and garden products like pesticides and insecticides can be dropped off during this time, as can aerosol cans, kerosene, and swimming pool chemicals.
A full list of accepted materials can be found on the town’s website or by calling the town’s recycling office at 631-283-5210. The next STOP day will be at the Hampton Bays transfer facility on Oct. 5.
STOP days are held four times a year, once at each of the town transfer stations. North Sea’s takes place in April, and Westhampton’s in June.
