I encourage everyone to join us on Saturday, September 15, when Glen Cove will hold its annual E-Waste (Electronic Waste Recycling) Program from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. at the Winters Brothers facility located at the end of Morris Avenue. This 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 that are highly toxic when released into the environment. This program offers the residents of Glen Cove an opportunity to dispose of these items in an environmentally responsible way.
I am also pleased to announce that on Saturday, September 29, Glen Cove will hold its annual S.T.O.P. (Stop Throwing Out Pollutants) Program at the Winters Brothers facility on Morris Avenue from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. I am proud that participation in this recycling program has increased each year as the city has become more aggressive in advertising and the environmental consciousness of our community continues to gain momentum. I encourage all residents to bring the items listed on the flyer you received at home for proper disposal.
If you did not receive a flyer at home regarding these two important programs, you may contact Public Works at 676-4402 for a list of acceptable items, or visit the city website www.glencove-li.us.
