Homeowners Cleanup & Paper Shredding Day on August 14th

Oyster Bay Town Councilman Tom Hand today announced that the Town will host a Homeowners Cleanup Program and Paper Shredding Day at its Solid Waste Disposal Complex on Saturday, August 14th, located at 101 Bethpage-Sweet Hollow Road in Old Bethpage. The cleanup will take place from 8:30 a.m. to 4:00 p.m.

“The Homeowners Cleanup Program offers a perfect opportunity for residents within the Town’s Solid Waste Disposal District to dispose of unwanted, non-hazardous debris that’s cluttering up their homes, garages and sheds” said Councilman Tom Hand.  “Paper-shredding services are also available to help protect your privacy when disposing of information paperwork. All paper shreds are recycled.”
