Reminder: Residential Curbside E-Cycle Pick-Up

Hempstead Town sanitation department will collect old electronic equipment Wednesday.

Hempstead Town is offering a curbside e-cycle collection Wednesday, Jan. 30.

As consumers are updating their electronic equipment more rapidly these days, proper disposal is important due to the toxins contained in these products.

"That's why Hempstead Town is taking responsible and proactive steps to ensure that your old electronic equipment can be recycled and disposed of properly," the town's website states.

Electronic equipment that will be accepted include:

  • computers
  • computer components
  • televisions
  • DVD players
  • VCRs

Items should be to your curb by 6 a.m. Available to Town of Hempstead Department of Sanitation residential customers only. This includes North Lynbrook and Bay Park. Businesses do not qualify. Call the Sanitation Department at 378-4210, option 6 for further details.

Remember to drill holes in the harg drive and fill them with crazy glue. Otherwise you could have your identity stolen.

This e-cycle is a good idea, I just wish Kate Murray would practice what she preaches. See video :http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Nzq67LIQ3dw Kate sends out 25 mailings per year costing the lives of over 1000 TREES and taxpayers about $5 million dollars. See the following for the environmental impact of paper production : http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Environmental_impact_of_paper. Also, Kate continues to use 5 TON salt trucks to pick up branches and twigs. This is a very wasteful practice. There is little room on the side of the salt hopper to hold much of anything. Essentially this use of labor and fuel does next to nothing to benefit the residents. This labor should be used to help the victims of hurricane Sandy. I've been telling Supervisor Murray about these issues for 3 years now, yet she continues these environmentally UN-FRIENDLY practices.
