The Code Enforcement Officer has reported seeing many TVs and other electronic equipment setting at the curb in front of homes waiting for the garbage man to pick them up, and he’s even seen many thrown in ditches along the roadside. He’d like you to know that your garbage hauler will not pick these items up, but you can take them to the Broome County Landfill for FREE disposal on specific days. You simply need to show your driver’s license. Here is what you need to know:
The Broome County Landfill will take hazardous waste, including household and auto batteries, propane tanks, fluorescent bulbs, driveway sealers, paints, solvents, stains, cleaners, pesticides, and pool and photography chemicals AND old electronics including computers, printers, stereos, TVs, copiers, fax machines, mobile phones, etc.
