It’s that time of year.
State Sen. Joe Addabbo, Jr. (D-Howard Beach) and Assemblyman Mike Miller (D-Woodhaven) will host their annual Fall Recycling Fair later this month at Forest Park.
Crews will be on hand at the Seuffert Bandshell on Sunday, Sept. 27, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m., to help collect items, including electronics, paper, clothing, and certain household items, to be safely and properly recycled.
Examples of recyclable electronic items include computers, monitors, cell phones, fax machines, televisions, PDAs, printers, batteries, cameras, power strips, wires, chargers, cable boxes, fans, air conditioners, telephones and VCR tapes.
Additionally, the fair will feature a paper shredder that will allow documents to be securely recycled on site while residents watch to ensure confidentiality.
Cardboard and appliances will not be accepted.
“There are so many things that people may not know can be recycled, or things that don’t get recycled simply because it’s a hassle to do so,” said Addabbo, a member of the Senate Environmental Conservation Committee. “This eliminates those hurdles and provides our constituents with a stress-free way to take care of all their recycling needs. In years past, this annual fair has proved to be one of the most popular events I’ve ever held, and I am confident that will continue into this year and for many to come. I thank our vendors for their support and participation year after year, as well as Assemblyman Miller for his partnership and the Department of Parks and Recreation for their cooperation as we hold this great community event.”
