E-Cycling

With the rapid pace at which technology is advancing, people are purchasing new computer systems, televisions, DVD players and other electronic components in record numbers. Industry experts estimate that American consumers dispose of 400 million units of electronic equipment per year. Recycling electronic waste protects the environment by keeping toxic materials, such as lead, mercury, cadmium and arsenic from entering the waste stream. Hempstead Town has taken responsible and proactive steps to ensure that your old electronic equipment can be recycled and disposed of properly by holding four E-cycling events each year. In accordance with the New York State Electronic Recycling and Reuse Act of 2010, beginning January 1, 2015 consumers are prohibited from disposing of electronic waste at any solid waste management facility or placing electronic waste in the trash or at curbside for trash collection.

All televisions, computers, computer components (including  cables, cords and wiring), monitors, tablets, e-readers, electronic keyboards, fax machines, scanners, VCRs, DVD players, electronic and video game consoles and portable digital music players will be accepted for recycling at each of our E-cycling programs.

Residents served by the Town of Hempstead Department of Sanitation may arrange for a Special Pickup of electronic waste at their residence by calling (516) 378-8484. All Town of Hempstead residents, including residents of incorporated villages within the township, are permitted to bring electronic waste to the Homeowner Disposal AreaResidents can also contact the manufacturer to obtain information on how to recycle the equipment.

Pharmaceutical Disposal and Paper Shredding

Pharmaceutical disposal and paper record shredding services are also available to residents at each E-cycling event. The safe disposal of unused medication and record shredding while you wait and watch will address areas of need at no additional cost to taxpayers. Please bring all paper records to be shredded in paper bags or cardboard boxes.
