Each year, Glen Cove provides residents with an environmentally sound way to dispose of household trash that is too unsafe or hazardous for regular disposal. A second STOP Program has been added this year, in addition to the E-Waste Program and Shed the Meds Program.
This year’s second Glen Cove STOP (Stop Throwing Out Pollutants) Program will be held on Saturday, Sept. 21 from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. (Raindate Sept. 28) at the Winters Brothers facility located at the end of Morris Avenue.
