4/21/22 @ 2:15 p.m. - On Saturday, April 16, 2022, the County hosted the Household Hazardous Waste Recycling Event. We are pleased to report that during the 4 hour event, a total of 348 vehicles came through. The event also included a food drive for Barnabas' food pantry. It has been reported that a total of 587 pounds was collected! This will have a positive impact on individuals in need right here in our community and we are grateful to everyone who made a donation.
Thank you as well to each and every resident that attended the event and did their part to ensure that harmful items are kept out of the landfill. And a big thank you to the employees at Nassau County Solid Waste and Keep Nassau Beautiful for coordinating the event, and to the public works employees who spent their morning with us clearing out vehicles for the residents, sorting materials, and placing them in the proper truck for disposal.
Below are some photos from the event. It will still be several weeks until we know the exact weight/tonnage of hazardous materials collected, but we will share that information as soon as it's available.
