Time to do some spring cleaning! State Senator Joe Addabbo and Assemblyman Mike Miller will be hosting their annual Spring Recycling event this weekend at Forest Park.

From 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Sunday, April 29, residents can bring their recyclable materials and clothes and shoe donations to the Forest Park Bandshell.

The event will be accepting items such as paper for shredding, old electronics (including small appliances and kitchenware), toys, bikes, small furniture, American flags and eye glasses. Due to NYC regulations, the recycling event will not be accepting, paint, tires or air conditioners.

“I look forward to co-hosting this recycling event each year with Assemblyman Miller because it gives constituents a chance to recycle some items that they might not get to otherwise — especially electronics since they cannot be put out on the curb for regular collection,” said Addabbo. “Not only is this a great way for people to get rid of some clutter in their home, but it helps protect our environment by not dumping these items into landfills. I hope to see another great turnout at this event!”

Past events hosted by Addabbo have collected more than four tons of paper and nearly 20 tons of electronics that were shredded and recycled as well as two truckloads of household items for donation.

For more information, call Addabbo’s office at 718-738-1111 or Miller’s office at 718-805-0950.
