Saturday Is Hazardous Waste Disposal Time

Thu, 06/24/2021 - 10:30

The Town of East Hampton has scheduled a Stop Throwing Out Pollutants day — known as a STOP day — for Saturday. From 9 a.m. to 2 p.m., residents can take hazardous waste to the East Hampton recycling center at 260 Springs-Fireplace Road for proper disposal.

Examples of pollutants that should be treated as hazardous include oil-based paints, pesticides, stale fuel, chemical aerosols, thinners, urethanes, engine coolant, and flammable materials. Only town residents can dispose of these materials on Saturday.

An announcement reminded residents that the program is not for commercial use. Waste will not be accepted before or after the allotted time.

More information can be had by calling the recycling center at 631-342-7191.
