The NYC Department of Sanitation hosts SAFE Disposal Events (Solvents, Automotive, Flammables, and Electronics) throughout the year in all five boroughs to give residents a location to drop off their harmful household products safely.

Only New York City residential waste is accepted at SAFE Disposal Events. No commercial vehicles are allowed. Residents must provide proof of NYC residency, such as a NYS driver’s license or utility bill.

What to Bring

  • Automotive products such as motor oil, transmission fluid, and batteries
  • Personal care items like unwanted medicines or cosmetics
  • Thermometers
  • Syringes (clearly labeled and packaged in a “sharps” container or other leak-proof, puncture-resistant container)
  • Household products such as pesticides, paint, hazardous cleaners, compact fluorescent light bulbs
  • Electronics – check the list of items that are considered electronics, here.
