This spring, the NYC Department of Sanitation is holding five SAFE Disposal Events (Solvents, Automotive, Flammable, Electronics), one in each borough, to provide NYC residents with a one-stop method to get rid of potentially harmful household products.

Materials accepted include common residential items such as auto fluids, batteries, electronics, glues, medications, paint products, and more! When deciding what items to bring, look for products labeled with the following signal words: DANGER, POISON, or CAUTION.
