[ARCHIVED] Safely Dispose of Your Hazardous Waste

Town of Smithtown to Hold Household Hazardous Waste Disposal Event

This Saturday, the Town of Smithtown Department of Environment and Waterways is hosting its bi-annual Household Hazardous Waste event. Residents are invited to bring items that are not permitted in regular curbside waste pickups for environmentally safe disposal. Hazardous waste can be dropped off between 7AM and 3PM on Saturday, October 19th at the Municipal Services facility on Old Northport Road in Kings Park.  

Items considered toxic or hazardous include antifreeze, pool chemicals, photo chemicals, old paints and paint remover, lighter fluid, adhesives, and herbicides. Residents are encouraged to avoid purchasing products labeled “Toxic” or “Hazardous” as a means of proactively protecting your family and your home.

On April 13th of this year, the Town held its biggest bi-annual hazardous household waste event yet. Approximately 606 Smithtown households participated in the event, safely disposing toxic items. The turnout resulted in over 20 tons of hazardous materials collected.

This is a free service. Proof of residency is required. The Town of Smithtown Municipal Services Facility is located at 85 Old Northport Road in Kings Park, NY.

In addition to hosting the Household Hazardous Waste Event, the Municipal Services Facility also accepts peanut and other cooking oils for disposal.

Residents can also dispose of electronic waste, free of charge, at the Town Recycling Center (also located at 85 Old Northport Road). Electronic Waste, such as computers, printers, TV’s, monitors, and automotive and household batteries can be dropped off during regular hours for proper recycling.
