Brooklyn SAFE Disposal Event

Posted on:

WHEN: Sunday, April 7, 2013, 10 AM – 4 PM
WHERE: Prospect Park, Park Circle (At the corner of Parkside Ave & Prospect Park SW)
WHAT: The NYC Department of Sanitation is holding five SAFE Disposal Events this spring (one in each borough) to provide NYC residents with a one-stop method to get rid of potentially harmful household products including electronics, batteries, paints, solvents, auto parts & fluids, medications and more. Visit for more information.

The acronym SAFE stands for solvents, automotive, flammables, electronics. Materials accepted include common residential items such as auto fluids, batteries, electronics, glues, medications, paint products, and more. Only NYC residential waste will be accepted at the SAFE Disposal Events.

When deciding what items to bring, residents should look for products labeled with the following signal words: DANGER, WARNING, or CAUTION. Products labeled DANGER represent the highest hazard level. Please also bring any other materials stored in your home that you know may be harmful.

“We provide NYC residents with an easy method to remove potentially harmful products that they may have stored in their closets, cabinets, storage areas, basements, and garages.” said Commissioner Doherty. “We are excited to once again hold these events after last year’s incredible success where over 10,000 attendees brought almost a million pounds of material to our five events,” continued Doherty.

All events will be held from 10 am to 4 pm (rain or shine). For safety reasons, attendees may not unload their vehicles outside of the event area. Due to the popularity of these events, there may be extended wait times.

If you can’t participate in these events, please keep in mind that there are many options year round to handle the following items: auto products, batteries, cell phones, electronics, fluorescent lamps, latex paint, mercury devices, and syringes. See to learn more. For additional information on the SAFE events, visit or call 311.
