Are you buying a new winter jacket? Do you have holiday lights that no longer work? Did your kids get duplicate toys this year? Did Santa bring you a new cell phone?
If you have items you’d like to toss but aren’t sure what to do with them, a number of collections are taking place in North Hempstead.
If you have coats you no longer need, donations are being collected through St. Vincent de Paul.
Cell phones piling up because you have the newest and best that technology has to offer? Drop off used cells at the North Hempstead e-waste recycling program at the following locations and dates:
- Herricks Herricks Community Center Jan 10-11
- New Hyde Park New Hyde Park Road School Jan 22-23
- East Williston Wheatley High School Jan 24-25
Hours are from 8 a.m. to 2 p.m.
Have old holiday lights that no longer work? Maybe you switched colors or swapped old lights for LED ones? Whatever the reason, if you have lights that you're not hanging this year, they can be recycled.
North Hempstead residents can drop off old lights every Sunday from 7:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. until the end of January at 999 West Shore Road in Roslyn, North Hempstead’s residential drop-off site and at the Town of North Hempstead Solid Waste Management Authority (SWMA) 802 West Shore Rd, Port Washington Monday – Friday from 8 am to 4 pm, excluding Holidays.
