State Sen. Joe Addabbo, Jr. (D-Howard Beach) and Assemblyman Mike Miller (D-Woodhaven) are bringing back the popular Recycling Day to Forest Park, Addabbo announced this week.
On Sunday, April 26, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m., residents and business owners can bring items such as clothing, coats, bedding, linens, paired shoes, scarves, belts, hats, handbags, computers, monitors, cell phones, servers, fax machines, televisions, personal digital assistants, scanners, copiers, printers, batteries, laptops, cameras, power strips, wires, chargers, cable boxes, fans, air conditioners, telephones and VCR tapes to the George Seuffert, Sr. Bandshell Parking Lot on Forest Park Drive, one block west of Woodhaven Boulevard in Woodhaven.
Addabbo noted that this year’s recycling events are especially important following new e-waste regulations which prohibit city residents from disposing old electronics curbside. As of April 1, property owners can be fined $100 for placing items such as computers and old televisions at the curb for pick up.
