1, 2019 –Legislator Leslie Kennedy (R-Nesconset) hosted a day
of “Spring Cleaning” in conjunction with Smithtown Library, e-Green Recycling
Management & the Suffolk County Sheriff’s Office. As the days go on and as
technology advances residents accumulate both paper, old electronics and unused
medicines. This event is designed to create a one stop shop for all residents
in the community to rid themselves of the accumulated clutter safely and in an
environmental friendly manner.
of the community of Smithtown and surrounding areas came out in full force on
Saturday to participate in this event with a line of cars stretched around the
Smithtown Library property. A multitude of paper, medicinal and electronic
waste was collected and safely disposed. The Suffolk County Sheriff’s office
was on hand to help collect old and unused medicine for safe disposal as part
of their “Shed the Meds” Program, along with a station to shred paper and
eGreen Recycling collected all old electronic products.
anyone missed the event and would like to drop off old and unused medication,
permanent medication drop boxes have been set up in the main lobbies of the
Riverhead Correctional Facility's Administration Building as well as in the
Civil Bureau in Yaphank and the lobby of all Police Precincts in Suffolk
County. Proper disposal is essential to protect the environment, and to ensure
that old prescriptions don’t end up in the wrong hands.
