Earth with leaves around it

These events are a great way to recycle your unwanted items, and they’re open to the public at Emma Clark Library:

Shed the Meds
Wednesday, April 3 from 12:00noon – 4:00 p.m.
Tuesday, August 13 from 4:00 – 7:00 p.m.
Wednesday, November 6 from 12:00noon – 4:00 p.m.
The Suffolk County Sheriff’s Office hosts this safe way to properly dispose of unused medications.  Proper disposal is essential to protect the environment and ensure that old drugs don’t end up in the wrong hands. Please note: The Suffolk County Sheriff’s Office cannot accept any liquids, needles, creams, or ointments of any kind. They are only accepting unused or expired medications from individuals (not large quantities from a doctor’s office or health care facility).

Community Shred Day
Saturday, May 4 from 10:00 a.m. – 2:00 p.m.
Saturday, October 5 from 10:00 a.m. – 2:00 p.m.
We’re here to help you get rid of that unnecessary paperwork in a safe and environmentally friendly way. Protect your privacy and get rid of clutter.  A shredding truck from A Shred Away, Inc. will be in our parking lot for on-site shredding of personal documents. There is a limit of 5 boxes or bags. All paper collected will be recycled at a certified paper mill. Please note: No plastic, carbon paper, hanging files, red well folders, cardboard, newspapers or magazines.  Clips and staples are fine to put through the shredder. No wet papers, and please take any boxes, bags, etc. back home with you.
