Use this service request type to schedule the collection of e-waste from your residence. Collection of e-waste is for residents only. Commercial entities and not for profit organizations must use an alternative e-waste recycling method.
Beginning in January 2015 New York State law has prohibited disposing of certain electronics as trash. These items must be recycled. For a list of e-waste items covered by the law go to: www.HuntingtonNY.gov/E-wasteCurbside
In order to maximize fuel economy for collection vehicles there are minimum amounts required to schedule a curbside collection of e-waste. Televisions can be collected alone, but must be larger than 25 inches in screen diameter for collection. Alternatively there must be five or more individual covered e-waste items out for pickup in order to schedule an e-waste collection appointment. Please note that while cell phones are not covered by the e-waste law they may be included as part of a larger e-waste collection.
Please complete the service request and Department will contact you (using your preferred method of contact) with a collection appointment date. You should place the electronic waste at the curb the before 6:00 AM on your scheduled appointment date.
In order to protect against identity theft, residents are strongly advised to erase or remove and destroy the hard drives of any computers that are to be recycled. Please consult the Town's webpage on e-waste for a "how to" video showing the proper way to remove a hard drive. http://www.huntingtonny.gov/e-waste
Who Can Participate: This program is an added service available to any resident in the Town’s Refuse Collection District that pays Refuse District taxes. More plainly, if you are a resident and the Town or its contractors pick up your trash, then you can participate.
Residents that are not included in the Town’s Refuse Collection District (This includes incorporated villages, some gated communities, apartments, condominiums and co-ops with commercial dumpster service) are not eligible to participate in this program. These residents may continue to use the e-waste drop off program at the Town’s Recycling Center. For more information call 631-427-6377.
