Clear Your Home of Unwanted Electronics and Hazardous Waste
Congratulations, you got a new laptop, cell phone, tablet, microwave, television, etc. The question is now, what to do with the old stuff? You can't simply put in the trash but you can bring it to the Dutchess County Resource Recovery Agency's annual Household Hazardous Disposal and Electronics Recycling Day on August 1st from 7:30 until 2 in the Town of Poughkeepsie at 96 Sand Dock Road.
In addition to electronics, you can also safely dispose of aerosol containers, chemicals, antifreeze, automotive and household batteries, cleaners, motor oil and other automotive products, paint, pesticides, and more. There is a $15 registration fee, but imagine how much better you'll feel knowing these hazardous materials are no longer in your home.
Plus, if you have any unwanted or expired medications, you can drop those off without paying a registration fee. You can pre-register here, or call the DCRRA at 845-463-6020.
