at the Forest Park Bandshell

Senator Joseph P. Addabbo, Jr., a member of the New York State Senate Environmental Conservation Committee, will host his annual Fall Recycling Event this weekend in partnership once again with Assemblyman Mike Miller.
From 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Sunday, September 27, crews will be on hand at the Forest Park Bandshell to accept items – including electronics, paper, clothing and certain household items – to be safely and properly recycled. Addabbo cosponsors this event each year as a way to not only encourage more residents to recycle as much as possible, but to create an easier and more convenient method by making it possible to responsibly discard so many different items all in one central location.
“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. “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 Assmeblyman Miller for his partnership and the Department of Parks and Recreation for their cooperation as we hold this great community event.”
The recycling fair will host a paper shredder that will allow documents to be safely and securely recycled on site while residents watch to ensure confidentiality. Electronics recycling will accept items including computers, monitors, cell phones, fax machines, televisions, PDAs, printers, batteries, cameras, power strips, wires, chargers, cable boxes, fans, air conditioners, telephones and VCR tapes. Cardboard and appliances will not be accepted.
The Salvation Army will also be at the recycling event to accept donations including clothing, coats, bedding, linens, paired shoes, scarves, belts, hats, handbags, dishes, glasses, silverware, lamps, pots and curtains. All donated items must be clean and dry. Books and eyeglasses will also be taken for recycling.
