SAFE Events

At SAFE Events, residents can drop off many items—electronics, cell phones and unwanted medications—that Sanitation will not pick up as part of regular trash and recycling collection.

Upcoming Events

Check back in early 2014 for the schedule of dates and locations for the next round of NYC SAFE Disposal Events. In the mean time, consider disposing and recycling these items through a return program or at a special waste drop off site.
